COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

Montana Aware Logo

Montana Aware is a 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.

An Executive Order was declared on January 13, 2021 by Governor Greg Gianforte that a state of emergency exists in Montana due to the global outbreak of COVID-19. A new Directive, Executive Order 2-2021, continues to mandate masks statewide and encourages all businesses to adhere to CDC health guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. You can read the Declaration, the Directive and the Implementation here.

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.

When you're ready to learn and explore throughout Central Montana, this video will help give you some ideas of places to go.

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