All individuals in Fremont County whom have been instructed to Self-Isolate by a Doctor or health care provider are asked to please call 307-857-3677 or 307-856-6979 to speak to a Public Health Nurse about your symptoms and to help you with any assistance you may need while you are under self- isolation.
