Bar, Restaurant Health Orders To Be Eased
Written by Taylor on January 4, 2021
Governor Mark Gordon has announced a return to normal operating hours for bars and restaurants, praising the response by Wyomingites that has resulted in a decline in COVID-19 hospitalizations around the state.
On January 9, bars and restaurants can resume onsite consumption from 10 pm to 5 am. The updates to health orders also allow gyms to increase the number of participants in group fitness classes from 10 to 25.
Governor Gordon said in a press release “Thank you to the people of Wyoming who recognized the strain on their hospitals and health care workers and acted accordingly, I also want to express my gratitude to those businesses that adapted to these temporary measures. These have not been easy times for anyone. We are not out of the woods yet, but continued personal safety measures while the vaccine is being distributed will enable our state’s schools and businesses to continue to remain open.”
The Wyoming Department of Health will continue to evaluate metrics as the state emerges from the holiday season. Counties can still opt out of the requirements if local conditions move to safer levels in accordance with White House metrics.
The updated health orders, along with additional information on Wyoming’s COVID-19 vaccination plan, can be found on Wyoming’s COVID-19 website. Copies of the orders, which are effective January 9 and expire on January 25, are also attached.
