There are currently 9 active cases in Sublette County, with 1,514 recoveries and 24 deaths, for a total of 1,547 cases since the pandemic began. Sublette County moved down to the Light Green or Low Transmission Zone for community spread reflecting the lower case counts in the past two weeks (December 23rd-–January 5th). Dr. Alexia Harrist, State Health Officer with the Wyoming Department of Health, said recent sequencing results combined with the CDC estimates show the Omicron variant has quickly become the most common version causing new COVID-19 infections in Wyoming.

Current data indicates that the majority of COVID transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after symptoms start. Therefore, the CDC has shortened their isolation recommendations:

  1. If you test positive (regardless of immunization status), you need to isolate—

  • Stay home for 5 days.

  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.

  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

  • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

  1. If you were exposed to someone with COVID (quarantine)-–

  2. Have you been vaccinated &/or boosted?

  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days. Test on day 5, if possible.

  • If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home.

  1. Unvaccinated? Not boosted?

  • Stay home for 5 days. After that continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

  • If you can’t quarantine you must wear a mask for 10 days.

  • Test on day 5 if possible.

  • If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home.
