COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

Montana Aware Logo

Montana Aware is statewide effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 by promoting safety measures for those traveling in the state. We are committed to protecting the health of residents and visitors, and ask that you do the same.

With the safety of residents and visitors top of mind, the best thing each of us can do as individuals is to practice social distancing, stay informed, and make educated decisions. Like much of the world, Montana is being affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

As of June 1, Montana has moved into Phase II of our reopening strategy. This means that Montana’s tourism amenities and services will begin gradually reopening. Visitors are welcome but should expect some services and destinations to have limited access.

You can see the latest directive from the Montana Governor here.

Phase II lifts the stay-at-home directive and puts additional public safety measures and precautions in place. While in Montana, we ask visitors to do their part in slowing the spread of COVID-19. This means taking social distancing and sanitation precautions as outlined by the Montana directive.

On July 15, a directive requiring face coverings in certain indoor spaces and outdoor gatherings was implemented in order to prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 throughout Montana. Learn More.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this situation poses a public health risk to those at higher risk due to age or existing conditions and they should refrain from nonessential travel. Consider postponing any nonessential travel, and get the latest travel alerts from the CDC here.

Our wide-open spaces, big Montana sky and fresh air will be ready when you are. Know that Central Montana will be here when you feel comfortable traveling.

It's a season of new life in Central Montana, and maybe this video can give you a moment of relaxation.

Stay healthy, stay safe, and we’ll see you soon!
