TRAVEL UPDATES FOR COVID-19 

In a place like Wyoming, we’re used to social distancing. But, at the request and advisement of health experts and professionals, we’re taking it one step further. While Wyoming is open to visitors and no quarantine requirements are in place for out-of-state travelers, the health, safety and well-being of Wyoming residents and visitors are of the highest priority. If you plan to travel to Wyoming and don’t feel well, please stay home and reschedule your visit for a later date. The latest information related to travel from the CDC can be found here
