COVID-19 Public Health Guidance

Teton County’s Roadmap to Recovery Plan can be used by the public and businesses to help determine what actions are needed to ensure the safety of our name of phases and length of timeresidents and visitors. There are three phases to the COVID-19 emergency: the response phase; the stabilization phase; and the recovery phase. Teton County is currently moving into the stabilization phase of the COVID-19 response.  

Within these three phases, the Teton County Health Department will use a color-coded public health guidance system that will provide minimum actions that should be taken by the public and businesses.  Metrics listed in the plan will be used to determine when Teton County is ready to move to the next color-coded level of risk. The metrics will also be shown on the the Teton County Emergency Management COVID-19 Dashboard.

Even though the Teton District Public Health Order that limited gatherings to only those in the same household has expired, the Teton County Health Department encourages everyone to remain cautious and encourages all residents to do the following:

Follow Strict Hygiene Standards, including:

•    Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as frequently as feasible

•    Use hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol based) when soap and water are not available

•    Cover coughs or sneezes into the sleeve or elbow, not hands

•    Regularly disinfect high-touch surfaces (buttons, door handles, counters, etc.) 

•    Avoid touching your face

•    Stay home when sick

Follow Physical Distancing Measures:

•    Wear a cloth face covering in public when you cannot maintain the 6-foot physical distance spacing

•    Always maintain a 6-foot distance from other individuals when in public

•    Refrain from shaking hands with other individuals

•    Do not visit friends or family without urgent need

•    Do not attend large gatherings
