Wyoming approves countywide mask mandate for Teton County
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming has approved a countywide mask mandate with some exceptions in Teton County during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported that State Health Officer Alexia Harrist signed the order Monday, hours after the Teton County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to approve a resolution for the mandate. Her signature was required to make the order law.
The mandate is in effect through July 31. People who have a physical or mental health reason to not wear masks are exempt under the order and do not need to provide documentation. The mandate is intended to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
