The Wyoming Department of Health reported 21 new coronavirus cases in Wyoming on Saturday, bringing the total to 187.

Fremont County had the most new cases with nine. Other counties with new cases include: Teton (4), Laramie (2), Natrona (2), Campbell (1), Sheridan (1), Sweetwater (1), and Uinta (1).

Laramie County continues to have the most cases with 42, followed by Fremont county with 36.

The Department of Health reported that 49 people who tested positive have recovered.

Wyoming is one of nine states that hasn’t issued a stay-at-home order. Gov. Mark Gordon forcefully defended his reluctance to mandate such an edict at a press conference on Friday.

He said his three statewide orders closing schools, some businesses, and prohibiting gathering of more than 10 people was enough and an example of “Wyoming values.”

The state should experience its peak outbreak in early May, the governor said.

“What we’re looking at is our peak coming sometime in early May and our behaviors, we will look at on a regular basis, but we’re hoping that by sometime in May, we can look at the metrics … and have good news for the people of Wyoming,” he said.

Dr. Alexia Harrist, the state’s health officer, said if residents do not comply with the restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the illness, the state’s health care system could collapse.

“Our health care systems could be overloaded,” she said. “Deaths that we could have prevented that will occur. These are very serious consequences, but ones we have are a role in being able to prevent if we follow the governor’s recommendations.”
