The Fremont County Department of Health has reopened. The department was closed for nearly a month following a cyber attack.
Almost all Fremont County buildings have remained closed since the attack on August 17th. A state investigation determined that the cybersecurity attack resulted from BlackCat ransomware.
The Health Department is reaching out to patients that missed appointments since the system went down and rescheduling them.
