Campbell County, WY – April 30, 2020 – Campbell County, the City of Gillette and the Town of Wright would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand the impact on local businesses and their patrons. We are as eager as everyone to get back to business as usual. In recent days, certain aspects of the public health orders issued by the Wyoming Department of Health and Governor Mark Gordon have been adjusted to allow gyms, barber shops, hair salons and other personal care services to reopen under specific operating conditions designed to minimize public health risk from COVID-19. Other parts of the phased approach involve easing restrictions on day cares and issuing guidance to hospitals allowing them to resume elective surgeries. However, the orders do not include the reopening of bars and restaurants for on-premise consumption at this time and they have penalties that must be enforced. Any bar, restaurant or other business specifically mentioned in the public health order that begins operations outside the guidelines set forth may be subject to fines and/or closure.
Until the state public health orders expire, we are asking that all businesses and individuals adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Wyoming Department of Health and Governor Gordon.
