The Wyoming Department of Health implemented modified COVID-19 guidelines on January 26 that will be active through at least February 14. These guidelines implement measures that coincide with Opening Up America Again.

According to the orders signed on January 21 by Alexia Harrist, the Wyoming State Health Officer, Opening Up America Again is the three-phase approach that began on April 26, 2020. The White House plan would remove restrictions when no evidence of virus resurgence occurred.

The orders require face coverings to be worn in restaurants, bars, and clubs. This is a continuation of what has been happening in Albany County and Laramie. Bars and Restaurants also must implement social distancing precautions as well as proper sanitization.

Gatherings of more than 10 people are still prohibited under the modification, unless specifically exempted. Some exemptions include livestock auctions, government or military businesses, residential buildings and grocery stores.

Indoor events may be allowed to have more than 10 people if no more than 25% of the venue capacity is reached, a maximum of 250.Outdoor events may have a maximum of 500 people but no more than 50% of the venue capacity.

Tattoo shops, hair and nail salons and other esthetic service businesses will be required to follow the same requirements under the new order. This includes social distancing, sanitization procedures and face coverings.

Under the modified health orders, businesses are still instructed to require face coverings on the premises. This requirement should be posted at the entrance of businesses.

New artist in Galion: SD Tattoo now open on the Square – Galion Inquirer01.12.21

GALION Tucked inside a corner building at 21 Public Square in Galion, right next to the gazebo park, sits the newest business to open its doors to residents near and far.

SD Tattoo, owned by Sailor Dave Rohr with help from his fiance Amber Nafziger opened in early December 2020 and has been ushering in a steady stream of customers ever since.

Rohr grew up in Johnstown and began his tattoo artistry in 1997 in Zanesville, apprenticing under a longtime tattoo artist.

And it just took off from there, he said.

He then set his sights on the rest of the country and spent several years in the commercial fishing industry before getting back into the tattoo business. He has shared his tattooing talents in Wyoming, Washington, Oregon, California, and several other states.

I really enjoy the lifestyle tattooing provides, Rohr said. I like working for myself and I just love tattooing. Its the one thing nobody can ever take from you. Its not like its going to wear out like a set of tires or a car or something. Its an investment. Thats why they arent cheap.

Rohr noted he has been so busy since they opened that he currently doesnt have any openings until Jan. 18.

Some of the most popular tattoo requests Rohr said he is getting recently are clocks and roses.

And script writing, people want to get things written on them, he added. I also do a lot of cover ups. A lot of people have bad tattoos they need to get them covered up. I specialize in cover ups. I love covering up old tattoos. I have a couple good sized projects going on already, but thats whats good about tattoos, you never know what youre going to do.

I also love doing color (tattoos) if the skin is right and the canvas is good. Black and grey I just love tattooing. I sit and listen to my music when Im tattooing.

Prices for tattoos vary, but Rohr noted he has an $80 minimum and charges $100 an hour, but said he does all-day sessions right now for $600.

Thats 10 hours of tattooing for $600, he said. I like to take my time. I try not to rush through any of my tattoos and want to make sure (customers) walk out the door happy.

SD Tattoo is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Rohr suggested people call and make appointments to ensure he has enough time to complete their desired tattoo.

Anyone with questions or who would like to make an appointment may call 419-462-8242. The Facebook page is titled SD Tattoo Galion and includes photos of Rohrs work.

Sailor Dave Rohr, right, is the owner of SD Tattoo, located at 21 Public Square in Galion. Rohr, who has worked as a tattoo artist since 1997, opened SD Tattoo in December 2020. Rohr is shown in his shop with his fiance Amber Nafziger and her daughter Silver Sands. For information, go to the shops Facebook page SD Tattoo Galion.

Most states now require face masks to reduce the spread of Covid-19. These are the ones that don’t – The Atlanta Voice12.12.20

While health officials agree face masks help prevent the spread of Covid-19, state and local governments have varied widely on implementation of mask rules. Now, President-elect Joe Biden wants to change that.

Bidens office has released plans that his administration intends to implement in the beginning of his term, and one is a national mask mandate by working with governors and mayors.

Most states already have some type of mask mandate, but some have no statewide rule either leaving it as a recommendation or giving the authority to local officials.

Four states recently added face mask mandates: North Dakota, Iowa, Montana and Wyoming.

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon previously left decisions on mask mandates to the county governments. The new mandate was announced December 7, goes into effect two days later and lasts until January 8, 2021.

It covers public indoor spaces, but allows counties to opt out of the restrictions if the numbers move to safer levels. Sixteen of the states 23 counties had mask mandates, but at least one county district attorney, according to CNN affiliate KGWN, has previously said violations of the mandate will not be prosecuted.

Montanas went into effect November 20, a week after North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum did the same, with the latters mandate lasting until December 13.

And on November 16, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation that requires a face mask when people are in an indoor public space and unable to social distance for 15 minutes or longer.

Some states mandates have been more flexible than others. Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly issued an updated version of a previous executive order on masks on November 18, creating a standard for the state, but also giving communities the ownership and flexibility to decide how best to implement it, she said at a news conference.

Here are the states with no statewide mask requirement.

Alaska

Alaska does not require the use of masks, limit group size or business operations. All the state does is encourage Alaskans to do their part to limit the spread of Covid-19, recommending that residents practice social distancing and wear a mask, without any mandate.

The mayor of Anchorage, though, has signed an order requiring people to wear face coverings in public.

Arizona

Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, allows individual counties to mandate a mask, but does not have a statewide initiative. Scottsdale was the first to make masks mandatory starting June 19. Other major municipalities with requirements include Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff.

Florida

There is no statewide mask requirement, yet some local municipalities have their own mandates.

Georgia

Statewide, masks are required for some essential employees, including restaurants and personal care services employees.

Meanwhile, several counties and cities have mask mandates.

Idaho

The state does not have a statewide requirement, but several local municipalities do, including Boise.

Mississippi

On September 4, Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican, lifted the state face covering requirement.

Just over a month later and amid rising case numbers, Reeves signed an executive order requiring face coverings in counties with higher Covid-19 case numbers. The Safe Recovery executive order is in effect through December 11 and includes 22 of the states 82 counties.

Missouri

The state does not have a statewide requirement, but several local municipalities do.

Nebraska

There is no statewide mandate, but clients and staff in barbershops, salons, tattoo parlors and massage parlors must wear masks, as part of the current Directed Health Measure requirements.

Oklahoma

The city council in Oklahoma City voted in a special meeting in July to approve an emergency public safety ordinance requiring face coverings in indoor public places throughout Oklahoma City.

South Carolina

Several counties and cities, including Charleston and Columbia, have mask mandates.

South Dakota

Gov. Kristi Noem, a Republican, has taken a hands-off approach to Covid-19. In October, she wrote in an op-ed that the government should not mandate a mask requirement.

As Ive said before, if folks want to wear a mask, they should be free to do so, she wrote. Similarly, those who dont want to wear a mask shouldnt be shamed into wearing one.

South Dakota is second only to North Dakota in the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 people.

Tennessee

Though there is no statewide mandate, Gov. Bill Lee, a Republican, signed an executive order granting the mayors in 89 counties the authority to issue mask requirements.

In a speech Monday, Biden implored Americans to stop politicizing masks and social distancing.

Please, I implore you, wear a mask, the President-elect said. Do it for yourself, do it for your neighbor. A mask is not a political statement but it is a way to start pulling the country together.

During the campaign, Biden spoke of his plan to issue a nationwide mask mandate. Doing so could be challenged in court, though, and in October Biden said he would go to every governor and urge them to issue mask mandates.

And if they refuse, Ill go to the mayors and county executives and get local masking requirements in place nationwide, he said.

Because the virus is mainly airborne, face masks are the most effective way to stop person-to-person spread of Covid-19, studies have shown.

Wearing of face masks in public corresponds to the most effective means to prevent interhuman transmission, and this inexpensive practice, in conjunction with simultaneous social distancing, quarantine, and contact tracing, represents the most likely fighting opportunity to stop the Covid-19 pandemic, prior to the development of a vaccine, researchers in Texas and California wrote back in June.
