Town Crier “Briefs from the Region” (1) – 7/29/21

In what feels like an act of déjà vu, the Centers for Disease and Control issued a recommendation this week that both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals wear face coverings again while indoors in areas with high caseloads. Gov. Greg Gianforte issued a statement about his concern for the growing case numbers in some Montana counties, but he did not address whether or not he would support another mask mandate. The Gallatin-City County Health Department issued the following statement on the matter:

“We are currently reviewing the updated CDC recommendations and our local epidemiological data for Gallatin County. Once our team has reviewed the guidance we will provide a recommendation to the community. At this time, we continue to recommend the CDC guidance that those who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask in indoor public places. It is especially important for those 12 and older to vaccinate against COVID-19.
