On Thursday, Montana Governor Steve Bullock issued a statewide stay-at-home order to all Montanans to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. According to County Attorney Kirsten Pabst, “all systems are go” at the Missoula County Attorney’s Office. She said there are four essential components to this new Directive.
“The first is stay home,” Pabst said. “The second is that businesses are required to close with some exceptions. The governor has required social distancing at all junctures of society. Even if an activity falls in exception to the rule, social distancing measures are still required. There is also a pretty significant travel ban.”
