There were 855 new cases and two new deaths added to the total on the Montana COVID-19 tracking site on Tuesday morning. The data below is from the official Montana website on October 27:

  • TOTAL CASES & RECOVERIES: There have been 29,346 cumulative cases, with 18,981 people now listed as recovered.
  • HOSPITALIZATIONS: There are 350 current hospitalizations, and a cumulative total of 1,245 hospitalizations.
  • DEATHS: The cumulative number of deaths in Montana is now 305.
  • ACTIVE CASES: There are currently 10,060 active COVID-19 cases in Montana.
  • TESTING: There were 4,997 completed tests, for a new cumulative state-wide total of 481,322.

Numbers reported by the state each day occasionally differ from those reported by county public health departments due to periodic lag times in reporting data to the state. We encourage people to check the official website and/or Facebook page of their respective county health department for any information that is not yet included in the state's daily updates. Based on additional data from county health departments, MTN News reports the following:

  • Deaths: 326 (+21 from state)
  • Active: 9,012 (-1,048 from state)
  • Recoveries: 20,508 (+1,527 from state)
  • Total Cases: 29,846 (+500 from state)

It's important to note that not every person who tests positive actually becomes ill or exhibits symptoms. Many do not; of those who do become sick, some experience mild symptoms and do not require hospitalization. Others, however, do require hospitalization, as noted in the daily update on the number of people hospitalized. However, every person who does test positive for COVID-19 has the potential to spread the virus to other people, including family members and friends, which is why public health officials continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask and maintain at least the recommended six feet of "social distance" when in public.
