Wyoming, Montana Activate National Guard to Help Hospitals
(Bloomberg) -- Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon called up about 95 members of the state’s National Guard on Tuesday to supplement hospital staff in 17 communities as the coronavirus rages.
“There are approximately 200 people with COVID-19 in Wyoming hospitals today, which is near the peak number the state has seen during the pandemic,” the governor’s office said in a statement.
In neighboring Montana, Governor Greg Gianforte announced 70 members of that state’s National Guard will assist hospitals.
