by Jackson Hole Radio News

Deaths of two Wyoming residents that occurred in March and April have been added to Wyoming’s total count of COVID-19 deaths. According to the Wyoming Department of Health, both deaths occurred in Colorado and were reported very recently to Wyoming’s Vital Statistics Services Office. An older woman from Carbon County who had existing conditions that put her at higher risk of serious illness related to the virus died in late April and an older man from Laramie County also died in late March, but it is unclear whether he had higher risk-related conditions. It is also reported that a fifth member of the Northern Arapaho tribe has also died of complications from COVID-19. That brings to 10 the number of deaths in Wyoming related to the COVID-19 virus.
