Current State/County Health Orders and Enforcement Responsibilities

Posted on October 19, 2020 at 8:54 AM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

What exemption does Roxie's have to allow her bar to not follow the current health orders that are in place and why if she’s does not have an exemption does the police department not fix the issue when they are called about it?

When members of the Laramie Police Department are made aware that businesses or individuals may be violating the State Public Health orders, that information is documented and forwarded to the Albany County Attorney’s Office for consideration. Early on during the pandemic, this process was established to evaluate possible health order violations. All possible violations of the health orders are evaluated by the County Health Officer, who determines the appropriate response based on the information provided to their office. Any further questions related to the current State and/or County Health Orders should be directed to the Albany County Public Health Office (307-721-2561).
