Petroleum Association of Wyoming releases statement in support of updated health orders

The Petroleum Association of Wyoming (PAW) released the following statement today, December 7th in response to the announcement, by Governor Mark Gordon, of changes to public health orders in the State of Wyoming:

“PAW commends Governor Mark Gordon and State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist for their commitment to keeping the people of Wyoming healthy, protecting our healthcare system and working on getting Wyoming’s economy back on track. The natural gas and oil industry has seen a significant decline in demand this year due to COVID-19, which cannot be reversed until the pandemic subsides and global economic activity returns. Simple personal choices like wearing a mask, social distancing, frequently washing hands and limiting gatherings have been shown to slow the coronavirus’ spread. The better we adhere to these guidelines the faster we will see our communities emerge from the burdens of the virus, the economy rebound and the energy sector thrive – bringing with it increased tax receipts and putting people back to work.”

The updated public health orders released can be found in our earlier post here.
