HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock says the state will further ease coronavirus restrictions in two weeks.
Bullock said Tuesday that Montana will lift its 14-day self-quarantine for out-of-state visitors starting on June 1.
The state will also allow groups of up to 50 people to gather and will allow restaurants, bars, gyms and other places to start operating at 75% capacity.
It's the state's second phase of reopening the economy, which began at the end of April with nonessential businesses and churches allowed to resume limited services.
After Bullock's announcement, Ravalli County health officials announced a cluster of at least six new coronavirus cases.
