According to Lewis and Clark Public Health the man has been instructed to remain isolated at home until he has fully recovered.

In a news release, Health Officer Drenda Neimann said, "“We wish this gentleman our best and hope he makes a quick and complete recovery. Our nurses will be interviewing him to find out where he’s been in the past two weeks and with whom he might have had direct contact. Anyone who is a direct contact will get a phone call from us with instructions for what to do.”

The second case is a woman in her 50's from Madison County.

That would bring the total number of COVID-19 Montana cases to 17.
