Central Montana Health District
COVID-19 Update: As of Thursday, July 16, 2020, at 10 a.m. Central Montana Health District is reporting two confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Fergus County. Both cases are in 20-29-year-old males; however, the cases are not believed to be related. Both are believed to be contracted in-state. Contact investigations are being done by public health and anyone identified as a contact will be notified by a public health nurse.
This is a cumulative total of 10 cases with 8 people recovered within the six counties of Central Montana Health District. At this time there are two active cases in Fergus County, which does not meet the criteria of 4 active cases set for mandatory masking as issued by Governor’s Directive on 07/15/2020.
CMHD reminds all residents that, because there is no cure for COVID-19, it is more important than ever to practice social distancing of at least 6 feet and wear a cloth face covering whenever you go out in public. COVID-19 disease is spread through direct contact with someone who has COVID-19, especially when they cough or sneeze.
