Five people have tested positive for COVID-19 following a "political event" in downtown Cody, the Park County Health Officer announced.

According to a post on social media, the event was held the afternoon of Sunday, July 19 in downtown Cody.

The post doesn't' give event-specifics. K2 Radio News has reached out for more detailed comment.

According to their website, the Park County Republican Party had a meet and greet scheduled that afternoon at Gasthaus Cardi, though it's unclear if that's the same event Park County health officials mentioned.
