Watch the briefing here:
Sublette County had 24 new COVID-19 cases reported last week, and WDH has confirmed that several variants are now circulating in Sublette County. These variants are of concern because they are associated with increased transmissibility, increased disease severity (increased hospitalizations or deaths), significant reduction in neutralization by antibodies generated during previous infection or vaccination, reduced effectiveness of treatments or vaccines, or diagnostic detection failures.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccination, practicing physical distancing, wearing face masks, and washing hands frequently, are essential to limit the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Testing for COVID-19 infection is available at Rural Health Care District clinics in both Pinedale and Marbleton.
Sublette County residents aged 18 and older are encouraged to receive a free COVID-19 vaccination through Sublette County Public Health. Register for an appointment here:
