The Casper Star-Tribune reported that eight counties in Wyoming were seeking mask orders, including Natrona County. 

Last week, Wyoming's county health officers sent a letter requesting a statewide mask mandate.

On Sunday, Natrona County Health Officer Dr. Mark Dowell called for a countywide mask mandate. He said not doing so would go against his training as an infectious disease specialist.
