Wyoming Now Has 4th Fewest Covid-19 Restrictions in the U.S.
As the ongoing pandemic continues, an updated list showed that Wyoming now cracks the top five for fewest restrictions in the nation, despite a recent uptick in active Covid-19 cases in Laramie County, as well as statewide.
WalletHub reported that as of July 7th, Wyoming was now just 4th overall in having the fewest Covid-19 restrictions while only South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Utah have even fewer restrictions in their states.
Some key statistics to keep in mind that determined Wyoming's current ranking are as follows:
- Travel Restrictions (1st - fewest)
- Workplace Temperature Screening (1st - fewest)
- Strictness of 'Shelter in Place' order (1st - fewest)
- Reopening of Non-Essential Businesses (1st - fewest)
- Reopening of Bars and Restaurants (2nd - fewest)
- Requirement to Wear a Face Mask in Public (9th - fewest)
- Large Gathering Restrictions (14th - fewest)
To our immediate south, Colorado has the 49th fewest Covid-19 restrictions, which conversely means they have the 2nd most out of the 50 states with only California having more.
