Pacheco’s statement was issued a day after Sweetwater County Sheriff John Grossnickle said his agency would not be arresting or citing anyone for violating the mandate.

Lincoln County Sheriff M. Shane Johnson said he didn’t believe policing a face mask mandate is the proper role of the sheriff’s office.

Laramie County District Attorney Leigh Anne Manlove has also said her office won’t prosecute anyone for a face mask violation.

Manlove cited a lack of resources in the face of state budget cuts as one reason, but she also said that she doesn’t feel a mandate from the county health officer constitutes a law.
