Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon announced that the state will lift the mask-wearing mandate along with other restrictions on bars, restaurants, theaters, and gyms to resume regular operations on March 16.

“I thank the people of Wyoming for their commitment to keeping one another safe throughout this pandemic,” Gordon said in a statement. “It is through their efforts that we have kept our schools and businesses operating and our economy moving forward. I ask all Wyoming citizens to continue to take personal responsibility for their actions and stay diligent as we look ahead to the warmer months and to the safe resumption of our traditional spring and summer activities.” 

Gordon stated that his decision to reopen the state was based on a decrease in CCP Virus (COVID-19) cases and hospitalizations, as well as significant vaccination success.

However, according to Gordon, face masks will still be required in K-12 schools as a safety precaution. Wyoming is one of the few states that has kept children learning in the classroom for the whole school year.
