Wyo Gov Says No More State Mask Mandates Or Shutdowns

      Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon says the state will not return to a statewide mask order or require COVID-19 vaccines despite a resurgence of the virus.

Driven by the Delta variant, has number of cases in Wyoming is back up to levels not seen since January.  

      Gordon imposed a statewide mask mandate in December and lifted it in March, but he’s now convinced that requiring masks can backfire.

        He told a news conference Monday that mandates can cause some people to resist wearing masks. 

     Gordon also said he doesn’t expect any more shutdowns like the public health orders that forced many Wyoming businesses and public places to close or limit occupancy much of last year and early this year.
