HELENA — HELENA - There were 4,374 new COVID cases reported in Montana on Friday. There are currently 15,713 active cases in the state, according to the Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services (DPHHS).
"As noted earlier this week, the DPHHS COVID-19 laboratory reporting system experienced technical issues that, in turn, slowed the process for new case and new test data to be entered into the system and reported on the COVID-19 dashboard. The technical issues to the reporting system were corrected earlier this week."
"However, these issues did impact the number of new reports to the dashboard that would have normally occurred throughout the week. The majority of new reports from this week are represented in today’s number of new cases and news tests."
The current number of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 is now 328, down from 338 on Thursday. The cumulative number of hospitalizations in Montana due to the virus is 11,161.
There are two new deaths in today's DPHHS report; one was in Cascade County, and one was in Teton County. Both occurred in January.
