Wyoming Ranked 25th Safest State in America
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to be one of the biggest safety concerns on Americans’ minds, WalletHub on Tuesday released its report on 2021's Safest States in America.
In order to determine the safest states in which to live, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 55 key safety indicators grouped into five different categories -- personal and residential safety, financial safety, road safety, workplace safety, and emergency preparedness.
Wyoming had the second-lowest COVID-19 vaccination rate in the country and the fifth most COVID-19 deaths and sixth most COVID-19 positive tests in the past week per capita.
