Amidst the uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, Montana is prioritizing the safety of our residents and visitors. The state is closely monitoring the rapidly changing public health situation and taking the precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization. Montana strongly encourages our visitors (from both in and out of state) to seek the latest information in regard to coronavirus and travel.
By making educated decisions, we can help protect ourselves and those we come in contact with while respecting our businesses and communities.

Montana is in Phase II of our reopening plan as directed by the Montana Governor. The phased re-opening lifts the stay-at-home directive and puts additional public safety measures and
precautions in place.
On November 17, 2020 Governor Steve Bullock issued a directive requiring face coverings statewide in public, limiting the size of gatherings to 25, and reducing restaurant and bar capacity to 50% and hours to close by 10:00pm. These measures have been implemented to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The full directive can be found here.
