COVID Thanks

Even frigid temperature won’t stop our community from lending a hand. On February 13th Fremont County Public Health held a drive through Covid vaccine clinic. 1400 doses were given at this clinic and the second shot will be administered on March 13th.

This event could have not happened without the many volunteers who helped make it extremely successful. We have received many compliment on how well the events are planned and executed. Not only do I want to thank Kayla Marler and her Staff of the Fremont County Health department, and Emergency Manager Mykel Kroll, but below is a list of awesome Fremont County
