COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE

The Cut Bank Chamber prioritizes the health and safety of our citizens and visitors. With that, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 and the rapidly changing public health situation. The Cut Bank Chamber wants to ensure that you have the resources needed to make informed travel decisions. We are taking precautions according to information and recommendations released by the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization and we encourage the traveling public to seek and heed the latest expert guidance.

What you need to know

Montana is in Phase Two of reopening the state in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic. We have all gone to great lengths to help control the spread, and it remains imperative that we continue to do our part by following state and CDC guidelines.

At this time, social distancing is still expected, and all vulnerable or high-risk individuals should continue to follow the stay at home guidance. Everyone, especially those at higher risk of getting sick, should continue to follow Montana Department of Public Health recommendations to protect themselves.

Travelers: Please TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY:

  • Stay up-to-date on travel regulations using reliable sources.

  • Plan ahead to ensure businesses and attractions are open.

  • Stay safe, and help keep others safe.

  • Be respectful, kind, patient and prepared.

  • Continue to monitor the situation, and adjust plans accordingly.

This phased approach is based on up-to-date data and statewide preparedness. It mitigates the risk of resurgence, placing emphasis on protecting those in Montana most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19. By continuing to take measures seriously, we protect our family, friends, and neighbors as Montana begins to emerge from its initial encounter with COVID-19.

SPECIAL NOTE: Tribal Nations in Montana have extended stay-at-home orders indefinitely and continue to exercise caution to protect their elders and other vulnerable populations from the spread of COVID-19. At this time, all tribal lands are closed to visitors. In Western Montana that includes the Flathead Reservation and the Blackfeet Reservation.

Illness Prevention

This is a rapidly changing public health situation and it’s important to stay informed by following reputable sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.

The best way to prevent infection from COVID-19 and any respiratory virus is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The same preventative measures that are recommended during cold and flu season will also help to protect against coronavirus:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often for at least 20 seconds using soap and water

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

  • Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue (or your elbow)

  • Stay home if you are sick

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

If you have traveled to any destination during the past 14 days:

  • Monitor your health and practice social distancing. Social distancing means staying out of crowded places, avoiding group gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.

  • If you get sick with a fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, or have trouble breathing:

    • Seek medical advice. Call ahead before going to a doctor’s office or emergency room.

    • Tell your doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms.

    • Avoid contact with others.

  • Do not travel while sick.

We urge the traveling public to stay informed, seek information from reputable sources, and take preventative measures like washing your hands to protect against COVID-19.
