The Wyoming Office of Tourism (WOT) and its tourism partners are closely watching the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its potential impact on Wyoming’s residents and visitors, per a March 6 release from WOT.

Thus far, there are no reported cases in Wyoming and state health authorities believe the risk to residents remains low.

WOT reports that they will be keeping all national and state parks, recreation areas and historic sites open until further notice.

At this time, the United States government and local authorities have not issued any advisories limiting domestic travel. The federal government has suspended inbound travelers from China and Iran, along with issuing restrictions to-and-from Italy, Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong.
