CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A spike in positive COVID-19 cases continues to be an issue in the state of Wyoming. Stitches Acute Care in Cheyenne is announcing that it has its first known case of a patient testing positive twice, for COVID-19. Reports say the patient developed antibodies and got reinfected with the virus six months after the first positive test, resulting in re-infection.

“It’s such a new virus still that we don’t know how long the immunity will stay for, we’re thinking three or four months, and also we do know that reinfection can occur,” C.O.O. of Stitches Cheyenne, Amy Surdam said.

She also mentioned that people should stay cautious by wearing a mask, washing their hands, and practicing social distancing.
