The coal town of Coppell, Wyoming, has closed down after a coronavirus outbreak.

Coppell Mayor Mike Williams said Monday that the town is shutting down due the threat of coronaviruses and is seeking donations to help the town recover.

Williams said Coppelton has received nearly $5 million in donations.

The town was first declared closed on Sunday after officials were notified of an outbreak in Coppells medical facility.

Cooke County officials said Tuesday that the county had not received any more confirmed cases.

Coopell is located about 90 miles northeast of Missoula, Montana.
