4/29: Update from Fremont County Incident Management Team


The Fremont County Incident Management Team has shared the following update today, April 29th. Also, an interview with Dr. Gee that discusses how contact tracing works can be heard below.


Fremont County tested positives for COVID-19 as of today, April 29th, is 101. The State Public Health Site lists 8 probable positives for Fremont County which means they were in close proximity to a confirmed positive.

Location breakdown:

  • Arapahoe  7
  • Ethete  12
  • Fort Washakie   7
  • Hudson 1
  • Lander  27
  • Riverton  42
  • St. Stephens   3

In addition, there was a positive patient in Dubois but that test was sent in by Teton County and not included in our count above. Also, 2 cases have not been specified to a location that explains the difference in totals between 101 and town numbers.

We are watching trends in all the metrics suggested by Dr. Harrist at the State Public Health Department to evaluate our local trends:

  • Percent of cases attributed to community spread
  • Percent of all tests that are positive
  • Total coronavirus-related admissions
  • Overall Hospital bed availability
  • ICU bed availability

Until the trends in our metrics support a loosening of restrictions, please put on a mask when you venture out in public, observe social distancing, and wash your hands frequently. Stay safe and protect others. Thank you.
