Governor ask Montanans to keep up good work as state slowly reopens

HELENA — Montana main street and retail businesses that closed their doors due to COVID-19 restrictions, were able to open up again Monday as part of the State’s “Phase One” of reopening.

Gov. Steve Bullock told MTN this milestone was only possible because Montanans took the virus seriously.

“We’re one of the few states in the country that have actually seen the decline of COVID-19 cases,” said Bullock. “Let’s not forget what we’ve learned of the last 6-7 weeks, because what got us here was being careful, social distancing and watching out for our friends and neighbors.”
