MISSOULA — Missoula County COVID-19 Incident Commander Cindy Farr offered up the latest information on the coronavirus in the below video.
Farr discusses current case numbers, asymptomatic spread, and CDC’s review of mask recommendations.
The State of Montana was reporting a total of 243 confirmed cases, including 21 in Missoula County as of Friday afternoon.
The Missoula City-County Health Department is confidentially contacting close contacts of the cases to monitor for symptoms and separate from the public.
Local health officials note that Missoula County is seeing signs of community spread, meaning we have cases where their exposure can no longer be traced to another positive case or connected to travel.
Anyone who has arrived in Missoula County after having traveled out of state in the past 14 days is asked to contact local health officials at (406) 258-3896. This applies to all travel, including vehicle travel.
