The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) that began in late 2019 has spread to dozens of countries across the globe. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the health risk for most people in the United States is thought to be low.
UPDATE 4.23.20 - Governor Bullock has released a guide for the phased reopening of Montana, which includes the slow and strategic reopening of Montana's businesses.
A statewide stay-at-home directive took effect on Saturday, March 28th. On Monday, March 30th, Gov. Steve Bullock also asked that tourists refrain from traveling to Montana while the state is under a stay-at-home directive, and that anyone who recently traveled to Montana from another state or country self-quarantine for 14 days. We are doing our best to follow new developments in our state and keep the information in this blog accurate, useful and up-to-date.
Visitors and residents should follow the same common-sense precautions as they would with the flu – frequent hand washing, avoidance of sick people, etc.
People at higher risk of getting sick should follow Montana Department of Public Health recommendations to protect themselves.
Some group gatherings have been postponed, and some communities may have more specific health guidelines. Travelers planning a visit should call their hotel and local visitors bureau for information specific to their locations.
We know that travel plans may be disrupted right now, but we’ll be here when you’re ready to reconnect and decompress on a getaway together.
