CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – Two Wyoming residents who died of COVID-19 in Colorado have been added to Wyoming’s count of fatalities from the illness, bringing the Wyoming total to 10.
. The state Dept of Health says the change was made because both individuals had contracted the virus in Wyoming.
One was an older woman from Carbon County with existing health issues who died in Colorado in late April.
The other was older man from Laramie County who died in late March, which would make him the first person from Wyoming known to die from COVID-19. Officials didn’t say if he, too, had existing health issues.
