Contact Tracing - If you were exposed to a positive case of Covid-19 and live in Park County, contact tracers will contact you via telephone and will identify themselves as being from the Wyoming State Department of Health or Park County Public Health. The purpose of the call will be to identify potential contacts, identify how long the contact was and to issue quarantine or isolation orders. The goal of these calls is to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus in our community.

How to Identify Counterfeit Money.
Small business owners need to be aware of the many ways to detect counterfeit money. The Secret Service offers a downloadable PDF called Know Your Money that points out key features to look at to determine if a bill is real or fake.
Look for fakes with some of these tips:
Color-shifting ink: If you hold the new series bill (except the $5 note) and tilt it back and forth, please observe the numeral in the lower right hand corner as its color shifts from green to black and back.
Security Thread: Hold the bill a light to view the security thread. You will see a thin embedded strip running from top to bottom on the face of a banknote. In the $10 and $50 the security strip is located to the right of the portrait, and in the $5, $20 and $100, it is located just to the left of the portrait.
Microprinting: There are minute microprinting on the security threads: the $5 bill has “USA FIVE” written on the thread; the $10 bill has “USA TEN” written on the thread; the $20 bill has “USA TWENTY” written on the thread; the $50 bill has “USA 50” written on the thread; and the $100 bill has the words “USA 100” written on the security thread. Microprinting can be found around the portrait as well as on the security threads.
Fine Line Printing Patterns: Very fine lines have been added behind the portrait and on the reverse side scene to make it harder to reproduce.
IRS Tax Scams and Consumer Alerts
Remember - The IRS doesn't initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information. Many IRS impersonators and hackers will be simultaneously shopping or phishing for others’ tax information via email, social media and by phone. Protect yourself and learn to recognize the telltale signs of a scam!
