COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

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 Montana Governor Steve Bullock. The phased re-opening lifts the stay-at-home directive and puts additional public safety measures and precautions in place.

As of June 1, Montana's tourism amenities and services will begin gradually reopening. Visitors are welcome but should expect some services and destinations to have limited access. While the recommended 14-day quarantine for those traveling to, or returning to, Montana has been lifted, we ask visitors to do their part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 throughout Montana. This means taking the same social distancing and sanitation precautions being taken by Montanans.

What You Need to Know
