Do you need help with food, or someone to bring you needed prescriptions, or maybe a mask to wear out in public? Do you wonder if you should be tested after a trip to another State? Has the business you work for been closed so you can’t make your rent?
We have compiled a LIST OF RESOURCES for anyone in Uinta County, and if something you need isn’t on that list, please give a call to Merrillee Francom, or Stephanie Ludwig at Public Health (307) 789-9203, or Kim West with Emergency Management at (307) 783-0327.
COVID-19 has hit all of the United States hard, and in ways we didn’t think possible. We are all getting weary of the worry and concern for our neighbors and our families. Having empathy is a good thing, but as everyone knows, too much of a good thing can be hazardous to your health. The longer this public health threat is around, and the constant ups and downs within our County and State, the more we are likely to be overwhelmed.
It’s easy to say don’t let it get to you, but for some this is easier said than done. There is help in Uinta County if you just want to talk to someone that can help you sort it out. Mental Health providers are standing by to give you a confidential ear. You don’t have to handle this on your own, you don’t have to listen to other people’s ideas about this outbreak, you have a right to speak to someone who is objective and will listen if you will talk.
We have compiled a list of Mental Health providers who will be there for you - today, and for as long as you need them. Just click on the word list and make a phone call to get started.
In addition to the information you find here, there are many other areas you can go to further educate yourself. Please use the following links to start your education about COVID-19.

BACK TO SCHOOL TIME!
Kids have been out of school for a long time now, and some are really ready to go back to all that means. There will be some changes for sure with the ongoing COVID-19 challenges.
Be sure to check with your school district to make sure you and your child are doing all we can to keep each other safe. **Note: There are masking requirements in each school district, and if a student or teacher is confirmed as a positive case, current isolation/quarantine orders will be instituted.
The Wyoming Department of Education and the Wyoming State Health Officer have made careful consideration of how that will look. Please check the current Wyoming orders, and check out your Uinta County School District below.
