Teton County Seeking Permission For Mandatory Indoor Mask Order
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Health officials in a northwestern Wyoming county busy with visitors to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks want to require people to wear masks indoors to limit spread of the coronavirus.
A rise in reported cases prompted Teton County Health Officer Dr. Travis Riddell to seek permission from state officials to impose the local order.
The order would also require people to wear masks while waiting in lines outdoors. Exceptions to the order would include instances when mask-wearing is impractical, such as while eating at a restaurant, the Jackson Hole News & Guide reported.
