On April 22, 2020 Governor Bullock announced a plan to gradually reopen the state through a three-phase process. The phased approach considers up-to-date data across the state, mitigation of the risk of further spread of the virus, protection of vulnerable populations, and the ability for local jurisdictions to adjust phases and implement more strict measures in their regions and communities. No set end date has been announced for Phase 1, which will begin rolling out on Sunday, April 26, 2020.
You can find more detailed information on Phase 1, guidelines for individuals and employers, important dates and more at the Gallatin City-County Health Department website at this link: https://www.healthygallatin.org/coronavirus-covid-19/reopening/
