(Lander, Wyo.) – Due to a much heavier walk-in case load in Riverton, the Fremont County Public Health office in Lander will be closing on Fridays, and additional resources allocated to the Riverton office.

Fremont County Public Health Nursing Supervisor Julie Twist told Monday that Riverton sees four times the number of walk in clients as are seen in Lander on Fridays. “Two nurses and a support staff person are in Lander on Fridays. They could be better utilized in the field or helping Riverton,” she said in explaining the decision.
