COVID-19 Impact Survey - 3rd Quarter now open!
CLICK HERE to participate. The quarterly survey will be open through the end of February. The WGCDD COVD-19 Impact Survey will be available quarterly to capture various data.
The purpose of this survey was to determine what aspects of the Council’s goals and areas of emphasis were most impacted during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, and the impacts on the DD Community in Wyoming. Questions asked varied from standard demographic questions (name, age, sex, county of residence, community designation), COVID -19 effects on daily life, impacts on employment, where individuals seek information and how beneficial/helpful the information obtained is, and how each of the Council’s areas of emphasis and other areas have been impacted.
