Montana Gov. Steve Bullock issued a new directive during a news conference today that requires face coverings in certain indoor business settings for counties with four or more active Covid-19 cases effective immediately.
Face coverings will also be required for outdoor gatherings of 50 people or more when social distancing isn’t possible.
Some context: Montana has doubled the number of Covid-19 cases just since the start of July, Bullock said.
Cluster cases in Montana have contributed to one third of the cases this month, he added.
