A Laramie County man has become the 21st Wyoming resident to die as a result of the coronavirus, the Wyoming Department of Health announced Tuesday.

The department, in a news release, said the man had no apparent health conditions that would have put him at a higher risk of complications from the disease.

The last Wyoming deaths attributed to coronavirus were reported by the Health Department on June 19. The two people who died were both residents of a Washakie County long-term care facility where an outbreak occurred.

The Department of Health reminded residents to take steps to slow the spread of coronavirus, including staying 6 feet away from others when possible and wearing face masks when social distancing is not possible.
