HELENA — Montana state health officials reported 109 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday morning, according to the Montana Response COVID-19 tracking map.
An additional two COVID-19 related deaths in Montana are also being reported. The two new deaths were reported in Yellowstone County and are related to the outbreak at a Billings care facility.
Gov. Steve Bullock today issued the following statement regarding the deaths of two more Montanans due to COVID-19, marking 34 deaths in Montana.
“I share the grief of Montanans mourning the continued losses of our own from COVID-19 and stress that the dangers of this virus to our most vulnerable make it all the more important that we work harder to protect one another. As we stand with the community and comfort the loved ones of these Montanans, we cannot become complacent in the fight against COVID-19.”
The Montana Response COVID-19 tracking map shows the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Treasure State is now at 1,952.
Tuesday’s data shows the total number of cases in the state now stands at 2,038.
The state tracking map is reporting 1,952 cases due in part to differences in reporting by county health departments which often receive information on confirmed COVID-19 cases before state officials.
To date, 1,035 Montana residents have recovered from COVID-19.
