Montana asks tourists to keep away during stay-at home order
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana's governor is asking tourists to stop coming to the state while it's under a stay-at-home directive. Gov. Steve Bullock also asks anyone who recently traveled to the state from another state or country to self-quarantine for 14 days.
The directive does not apply to people traveling into the state for work-related reasons.
Bullock told President Donald Trump that Montana needs more testing supplies to help identify people with the virus and test people who have been in contact with them.
Montana had 177 positive cases of COVID-19 and four deaths as of Monday afternoon, including 69 in Gallatin County.
