The summer of COVID-19
Carbon County looks back on the summer that changed everything
September 30, 2020
Summer 2020 is officially over and Carbon County, like the state of Wyoming, had to make adjustments as the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) was still impacting life for many residents.
It was hoped back in April, and then May, that the virus would be under control with warm weather. That didn't happen. Cases started spiking in the West and South.
The summer of COVID-19 started in June and people anxious to get out of lockdowns started to travel but not by public transportation such as planes, busses and trains. Recreational Vehicles and vehicles with campers were taking over the roads.
