Teton County's COVID-19 community updates are now just once a month.

To hear the latest trends, concerns and solutions from community leaders responding to the global pandemic tune in at 3 p.m. today. Teton County has reported six new cases in the past 24 hours and has 33 active COVID-19 cases, according to the Wyoming Department of Health, while other counties are seeing double digit increases.

The Jackson Hole community update is streamed live on the town of Jackson website, JacksonWY.gov (click the “Watch a Meeting” icon). The meeting is also broadcast live on local radio stations KJAX (93.5 FM), KHOL (89.1 FM) and KMTN (96.9 FM) and archived on town’s website.

This month's update will include: 

  • Mayor Pete Muldoon – Jackson Town Council
  • Chair Natalia Macker – Teton County Board of County Commissioners
  • Jodie Pond – Teton County Department of Health
  • Dr. Travis Riddell – Teton District Health Officer
  • Dr. Paul Beaupre – St. John’s Health
  • Anna Olson – Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce
  • Betsy Carlin – Teton County School District trustee

On Thursday, 16 Wyoming counties reported 70 new confirmed cases, pushing the number of active cases in the state back over 600.

The Department of Health also reported three new deaths, all older men. One, a Goshen County resident, died earlier this month at an out-of-state hospital where he was being treated for the illness after catching it in Wyoming. The department said it was unclear whether the man had underlying health conditions that might have made him more susceptible to complications from the disease.

Another older man, a Natrona County resident, died last week while being treated for the illness in a hospital. The man had underlying health conditions, the department said. The third death, a Park County man, died within the last week, the department said. It added the man had underlying health conditions that may have made him more susceptible to the illness and that he had not been hospitalized prior to his death.
