Fremont County and municipal Government leaders would like to assure citizens that there are no plans to issue any kind of mandatory business closures in the community. The choice to implement any kind of closure will remain with the business owners.

Fremont County Public Health Officer Dr. Brian Gee would like to remind everyone that while we still need to practice social distancing, you can still get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Going for walks and getting some fresh air is a good idea just try to keep your distance from others and avoid congregating in large groups. Remember to stay hydrated and get plenty of sleep and exercise. Fremont County Public health will be publishing a flyer throughout the community with tips for social distancing. The flyer will also be available on the Fremont County Public Health Facebook Page as well as the Public Health Website.
