Wyoming Governor: Decision To Reopen State To Be ‘Driven By Data’
Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon said Wednesday evening that any decision on reopening the state economy in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic will be "driven by data."
The governor, during a media briefing in Cheyenne, also said that while Wyoming is entering into "stabilization mode," people should not expect instant recovery, either in terms of the presence of COVID-19 or for the state economy.
Currently, state restrictions on many types of businesses and large public gatherings are in place through at least April 30 in Wyoming.
The governor earlier in the day said he had told state agencies to look for areas where they can make immediate budget cuts.
He also ordered a freeze in positions and other money-saving steps designed to deal with large decreases in state revenues.
