Guidance from MCCHD 

The health department is following CDC guidance for people who have traveled to or through countries with travel advisories. Missoula County residents must check-in with the health department upon returning from a country with a Level 3 travel advisory from the CDC at 406-258-3896 to receive guidance on monitoring for symptoms and whether they need to limit movement in the community.


Guidance from Governor Bullock

UPDATE:  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
