Castle Rock Medical Center continues to monitor and update information with the progression of COVID-19 Coronavirus throughout the state of Wyoming. This page was developed to provide ongoing updates of information and guidelines to keep our Staff, Patients, Visitors and the General Public up-to-date and informed.

We are continuing to see ill patients and essential wellness visits for children. Telemedicine appointments are available. Please call 307-872-4590 for an appointment. Our lab and radiology departments are also open for essential visits.

There is no vaccine for COVID-19, but there are many actions you can take to protect yourself from getting COVID-19. These are the same actions that can protect you from getting any respiratory illness.

  • Follow public health orders.
  • Wear cloth face coverings in public settings where physical distancing of at least 6 feet isn’t practical.
  • Stay home when sick and avoid other people unless you need medical attention.
  • Older people and those with health conditions that mean they have a higher chance of getting seriously ill should avoid close-contact situations.
  • Long-term care and healthcare facilities should follow guidelines for infection control and prevention.

Important things to remember

  • Disease symptoms, which may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure, include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell. Older residents and people with certain health conditions have a higher risk of developing more serious illness.
  • It is important to call ahead before going to see a doctor or emergency room to prevent the spread of illness. Tell them your symptoms and that you suspect you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 or had recent travel to a country that is experiencing community spread.

We advise Wyomingites to always be prepared for an emergency — like a large snowstorm– and have a plan for your family or household.
