COVID-19 Impact Report
The WGCDD COVD-19 Impact Survey will be available quarterly to capture various data. Please check back soon to participate in this quarter's survey.
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.

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to impact the United States, phone scammers have seized the opportunity to prey on consumers. Here are some tips to stay safe from scammers!
Don’t respond to texts, emails or calls about checks from the government. The details are still coming together.
Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There are no products proven to treat or prevent COVID-19 at this time.
Be wary of ads for test kits. The FDA just announced approval for one home test kit, which requires a doctor’s order. But most test kits being advertised have not been approved by the FDA, and aren’t necessarily accurate.
Hang up on robocalls. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from low-priced health insurance to work-at-home schemes.
Do your homework when it comes to donations. Never donate in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money.
