Missoula business owners take precautions before government regulations

On Monday, Missoula City-County Health officials announced an order closing bars and limiting restaurant service starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday through 8 a.m. Tuesday, March 24.

The health department is doing this to follow guidelines set out by the Centers for Disease Control.

“It’s not just about money, it’s really about the ethics of being open right now,” said co-owner of Burns St. Bistro Jason McMackin.
