Sweet Grass County residents weigh in on why there have been no state-confirmed cases of COVID-19

BIG TIMBER — The streets of Big Timber are quiet, but that’s not uncommon for this small community on a Sunday afternoon.

Amy Smith has worked as the head chef at the Grand Hotel downtown for thirty years.

She says people in town know how to keep to themselves, which is why she believes the county has no state reported cases of COVID-19.

“We’ve had some tough winters over the last few years, so yeah, we are used to staying at home, sitting on the couch, taking up knitting, stuff like that,” said Smith.
