Reopening the Big Sky Phase 2

Beginning June 1

What is allowed? What isn't allowed?

Montana has been an example for the rest of the nation in our response to this global pandemic. I have no doubt that we can continue to be that example, but only if Montanans, businesses, and visitors alike continue to take seriously the responsibility we all have in protecting others.”  

“As we continue with the next phase in our reopening, our goal together as Montanans for the foreseeable future is to mitigate the spread of the virus.” – Gov. Steve Bullock
