Mandatory Quarantine for Out-of-State Travelers through April 10th
As total cases in Montana climbed to 177 on Monday, Governor Steve Bullock issued an order that travelers from another state or country to Montana for non-work-related purposes undergo a 14-day self-quarantine. Health care workers are excluded from this order. The Directive also authorizes the Montana National Guard to conduct temperature checks at Montana airports and rail stations, and the order also authorizes screenings of potential exposure history for travelers arriving in Montana from another state or country.
“While we love our visitors, we would ask that you not come visit while Montanans are watching out for one another by staying at home,” said Governor Bullock. “This is important not only to protect our health care system, but also to protect against the spread of COVID-19.”
Governor Bullock also said, “As of today, travel from another state or country is the most common known source of COVID-19 infections in Montana. I am asking anyone who is in Montana and has recently traveled from another state or country to do the right thing and self-quarantine for 14 days.”
