The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) is announcing the death of a Campbell County woman identified previously as one of the state’s laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The older female did not have health conditions known to put patients at higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19 and had not been hospitalized.

Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 25 coronavirus-related deaths, 1,830 lab-confirmed cases and 408 probable cases reported.

Disease symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after virus exposure and include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell. COVID-19 can be transmitted by infected people who aren’t experiencing symptoms.

WDH recommendations meant to slow and limit transmission of the virus include:

Staying home from work and away from others when ill unless medical care is needed

Maintaining physical distancing of 6 feet whenever practical

Wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where physical distancing is not reasonable
