Our community is eager to greet you. As a small community with limited resources, we need your help to ensure the continued health and welfare of our local businesses and community members. Before you arrive, please take note of a few important COVID-19 notices.
State mandated limits to group sizes and venue capacity
Health orders continue to allow outdoor gatherings of no more than 50% of venue capacity, with a maximum of 1,000 people, as long as social distancing and increased sanitization measures are in place. Indoor gatherings in a confined space remain limited to 50 persons without restrictions and 250 persons if social distancing and sanitization measures are incorporated.
Modified restaurant, bar and brewery operational practices
Local restaurants, bars, breweries, and distilleries remain open for inside and outside dining with strict social distancing requirements. Many local eateries are taking reservations to manage their occupancy levels. Local restaurants are following strict sanitation protocols, and their staff must wear masks and gloves at all times. Diners are not required by state health to wear masks, but it is up to the individual restaurants to make that decision.
Pinedale’s retail shops, museums, and public forums are open, but we are asking that you comply with each institution’s mask policy. While we have no formal mask requirement ordinance in Pinedale, we ask that each individual practice disciplined social distancing protocols and wear a mask whenever possible.
Please, if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 stay at home and do not put others at risk. For more information on COVID-19, please refer to the Wyoming Governors Office.
