To the young residents of Gallatin County: we need your help. We are seeing an increase of young people being diagnosed with COVID-19. During the month of March, the median age of people diagnosed with the disease in Gallatin County was 44 years old. That median age in May and June dropped to just over 28.
We are seeing the disease spread among all ages. But we are also seeing young people diagnosed with large numbers of close contacts: at workplaces, at parties, at bars and at home. While many young people will experience mild symptoms, or perhaps no symptoms at all, please know that you can spread the disease to people with serious health conditions with serious consequences. A pandemic is not a time for large parties or crowded bars. We need your help to limit your contact with others – even if you feel great and even if you are not worried for yourself.
