“This decrease in unemployment suggests that Wyoming’s economy continues to recover from the sharp contraction seen in April,” the report says. “It appears that the lifting of some COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and the reopening of businesses have resulted in many individuals returning to work. While still elevated, Wyoming’s unemployment rate was significantly lower than the U.S. rate of 11.1%.”
