The Wyoming Department of Health is closely monitoring the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak situation and sharing recommendations with Wyoming residents and healthcare providers.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some of which cause the common cold in people and others that circulate among animals. This is a new virus and new viruses need special attention.
COVID-19 was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China with a link to a local seafood and animal market. Many early patients reportedly had a connection to the market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. The illness growth has since shown the virus is spread from person to person. Symptoms have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and shortness of breath.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends avoiding all nonessential travel to China. Chinese health officials have reported thousands of COVID-19 cases in China, including severe illnesses and deaths. Sustained person-to-person community spread with this virus is reportedly occurring in China. More specific coronavirus-related information from CDC about travel to and from China is available here.
The U.S. Department of State has also issued an advisory recommending no travel to China.
Additional restrictions are in place for people wishing to enter the United States from China.
