BROWNING — The Blackfeet Reservation will remain closed down until June 30 due to COVID-19 concerns.

All of the same restrictions, such as for curfew and alcohol sales, still apply.

The east entrance of the Reservation is also closed to travelers going to Glacier National Park.

"With the openings around us, you know, people are coming in out of state, out of area, to visit,” explained Blackfeet Tribe spokesman James McNeeley.

“We are just wanting to keep our people safe here on the Blackfeet Nation and make sure we stay healthy and away from COVID,” he added.

While Glacier National Park is expected to begin a phased reopening during the first part of June, Yellowstone National Park will open its Montana entrances on Monday.
