Governor's Press Conference Wednesday: COVID-19 and economic relief programs

Governor Mark Gordon will hold a media briefing at 3 pm, Wednesday, August 5 in the Governor's Ceremonial Conference room in the State Capitol Building. The Governor will be joined by State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist to provide an update on the COVID-19 pandemic and CARES Act spending.


The briefing will be streamed live on Wyoming PBS television, the Wyoming PBS' Facebook page and Wyoming PBS YouTube channel.


Business Relief & Mitigation

In the first hours the COVID-19 Business Relief and Mitigation funds were open today, nearly 1,000 small businesses and nonprofits submitted applications. Due to this high demand, the Wyoming Business Council encourages all eligible entities to apply now.


“The speed at which these funds were applied for is a reflection of the huge need experienced by Wyoming businesses and nonprofits during this difficult time,” Business Council CEO Josh Dorrell said. “Businesses and nonprofits should make sure to take advantage of these dollars because we don’t know how long the money will last.”

The first of the COVID-19 Business Relief Programs, the Interruption Fund, closed to applications on July 2 and has put approximately $100 million into Wyoming businesses impacted by the coronavirus. The Relief and Mitigation funds will contribute an additional $225 million by the time all applications are processed this year, totaling $325 million.
