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 working closely with our healthcare partners at the local, state and federal level to ensure that we are preparing protocols based on the latest guidelines and recommendations.

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.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick, and keep your children at home when they are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Important things to remember

  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health setting).
  • 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.

  • Not all coronaviruses are COVID-19. There are many other kinds of common coronaviruses currently circulating in Colorado and the U.S. that cause respiratory illness. There also are many other kinds of respiratory illnesses (such as colds and flu) circulating right now.
  • COVID-19 is a new coronavirus. Before this current outbreak, people had never experienced or been made sick by this virus.
  • This virus is spreading from person-to-person and cases have been detected in a number of countries, including the United States.
  • Symptoms of this new coronavirus infection include fever, cough and/or shortness of breath. Symptoms usually appear within two to 14 days after exposure.
  • Now that we have confirmed COVID-19 cases in Colorado, the vast majority of cases will be mild. In other areas, cases have been more severe in the elderly population and with people who have underlying health conditions.
