Following the March 19, 2020 issuance of public health orders by the State of Wyoming Governor, WyoTech made the decision to pause student instruction while it developed a plan of operation allowing WyoTech to resume teaching true to its brand and values.

With the assistance of the Wyoming Governor’s Office, Wyoming State Health Officer, Albany County Health Officer, and local officials, WyoTech has developed its “Protocol to Promote a Safe and Healthy Environment.” The Protocol will allow WyoTech to resume teaching and instruction on May 11, 2020.

“WyoTech’s plan has implemented the Centers for Disease Control social distancing and hygiene guidelines and can safely reopen,” says County Health Officer Dr. Jean Allais.

Governor Mark Gordon adds, "I want to commend WyoTech for innovating during this challenging time and for working with city, county, and state officials to develop a detailed operational plan that protects student and staff health."

WyoTech is taking careful precautions to keep students and staff safe while also navigating a responsible return to business. Josh Dorrell, CEO of the Wyoming Business Council, is a strong advocate of WyoTech and says,

“Throughout its history, WyoTech has found creative ways to overcome adversity, and dealing with COVID-19 is no different. In addition to finding a way to safely serve a new class of students, their team took this time to explore new ways to deliver their outstanding and important educational content while maintaining their brand. They are a great example of how a business can turn challenges into strengths.”
