Guidance from Governor Bullock

**UPDATE: On May 19, Governor Bullock announced the extension of the Mandatory Quarantine Directive until the start of Phase Two on June 1.**

Quarantine for Travelers 

 If you are self-quarantining, you cannot leave for groceries, public outdoor recreation, to go to work or any other   activity. You must remain at your place of quarantine for the duration of the quarantine period. Exceptions will only   be made in the event of a medical emergency, fire, natural disaster or other act of God preventing the ongoing   healthful habitation of a residence.


On March 30, 2020 Governor Bullock issued a directive that states: "Any person coming to Montana from another state or country for a non-work-related purpose must immediately self-quarantine for 14 days. If a person will be present in Montana for fewer than 14 days, that person must self-quarantine for the duration of the visit." 

Any person who has already arrived in Montana from another state or country for a non-work-related purpose before the date of this Directive must immediately self-quarantine for the remainder of a 14-day period beginning on the date of their arrival in Montana, or until their departure from Montana—whichever is sooner. 

The directive applies to both Montana residents and non-residents. 

These quarantine restrictions do not apply in the following circumstances: 

1. to persons traveling through Montana en route to another destination; or 

2. to public health, public safety, or healthcare workers 

Governor Bullock's March 30 Travel Directive



On March 19, 2020, Governor Bullock issued a travel advisory for all people arriving in Montana from out-of-country. Governor Bullock advises individuals who have traveled internationally to self-quarantine for 14 days and contact the health department.
