COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

We aren't going to tell you to pack your bags and head to Central Montana. In fact, we want you to stay home and be safe. Right now is the time to dream about where you will go when it's safe to travel.

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.

On Saturday, March 28, Montana Governor Steve Bullock put a statewide stay-at-home directive in place. On April 22, he announced a phased reopening of the state which will begin to take effect on Sunday, April 26. This reopening begins to lift the stay-at-home order and puts additional public safety precautions in place. The Governor continues to ask that visitors arriving in Montana from another state or country for nonwork related purposes undergo a 14-day self-quarantine to ensure the safety of themselves and Montanans. Read the full directive here. Starting June 1, Montana will move to Phase II. See the details here.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this situation poses a public health risk and everyone should refrain from nonessential travel and take precautions to limit the spread of the virus. Consider postponing any nonessential travel, and get the latest travel alerts form 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 travel is safe again.
