BOZEMAN — Local health officials are reporting two new confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Gallatin County.

As of Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at 11 a.m. Gallatin County has a cumulative total of 190 cases.

There are eight confirmed active cases. There have been a total of 181 people recovered in Gallatin County. One person has died from COVID-19 complications.

The two new cases are located in the Gallatin Valley. One is a known contact to another case, while the second case is still being investigated.

Local data on active cases may differ from the state map as the state map is only updated once daily and calculates active cases differently.

The Gallatin City-County Health Department calculates the recovered case number as the number of total cases minus any active cases, current hospitalizations and deaths.
