Ravalli County Public Health reported Saturday morning that three more county residents died due to complications from COVID-19.
According to a press release, the three who died were a woman in her 80s, a man in his 80s, and a man in his 60s. No further information was released.
"In recent weeks we have seen the number of those infected with the virus jump dramatically," the health department stated in the press release. "We recommend residents keep their cohort circles small. Practice physical distancing whenever possible. Wear a mask in public when physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Frequent hand washing and sanitizing when hand washing is unavailable. Most importantly remembering that our community needs “U” and “I” to make good choices."
The three deaths reported Saturday are in addition to the 27 in the most recent update from the state of Montana.
