Gov. Mark Gordon announced the personnel changes Tuesday.

It's not clear if the resignations are related to the data leak.

A spokesman for the governor declined to comment, calling it a “personnel matter.”

A state employee accidentally released COVID-19 test results for over one-quarter of Wyoming's population in late 2020 and early 2021.

Test results, names, addresses, birth dates and other information were released.
