FROM: Mary Schell, PIO, Converse County Emergency Management Agency
On Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 the Converse County Public Health Department in conjunction with Memorial Hospital of Converse County received notification of 2 individuals that tested positive for COVID-19 at MHCC. Both individuals live and work in NATRONA County. Both patients were assessed in MHCC’s drive thru clinic.
Representatives from the city, towns, hospital and county are working in unison to ensure the health and safety of our residents. While both of these cases are not officially connected to Converse County, the Converse County Covid-19 Emergency Operations Center wants the public to understand that Covid-19 is in our community. Our residents need to be prepared for the very real possibility of COVID-19 being here. The Surgeon General’s warning at the start of the week was: "Everyone needs to act as if they have the virus right now. So, test or no test, we need you to understand you could be spreading it to someone else. Or you could be getting it from someone else. Stay at home [as much as possible]. ”We applaud these individuals for self isolating and using the drive through clinic.
