HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock says he will begin a phased re-opening of the state's economy after April 24 but didn't provide specifics about what that means.
Bullock said Friday he'll have more specific information by midweek.
His announcement comes a day after President Donald Trump offered federal guidance for reopening state economies.
The governor said he's been working with business leaders and public health experts to determine how the state's economy could be re-opened while keeping people safe and avoiding another outbreak of coronavirus.
