HELENA — State wildlife officials are temporarily closing Bannack State Park due to social distancing concerns and to limit the possible spread of COVID-19.

Gov. Steve Bullock has issued statewide stay-at-home and social distancing directives to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) notes that given the nature of park and the desire to tour the many buildings, it is next to impossible to adhere to the directives and still allow tours.

The park will be closed until at least April 10, when the directives will expire or be extended.

Bannack State Park has more than 100 historic buildings, the majority of which are accessible by the public.
