There were 201 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases reported in Montana on Tuesday, and the statewide death toll since the pandemic began is 1,476, according to data compiled by MTN News.

(Note: The increase in the number of COVID-19 related deaths being reported today is due to the ongoing reconciliation of death records. All of the deaths occurred between January and March, according to state health officials. There were five additional deaths recorded in Cascade County, two in Musselshell County, and one in Park County.)

The number of active cases in the state is currently 904, according to MTN News, and there has been a cumulative total of 105,611 cases of the virus in Montana. Of the total cases, 103,231 have recovered.

There are currently 33 people hospitalized for treatment of the virus, and the cumulative number of hospitalizations is 4,816.

The number of tests performed in the state has reached 1,216,736, an increase of 2,705 during the previous 24-hour reporting period.

The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Montana is 534,000, and the number of residents who are fully immunized is 215,022.

The numbers reported by MTN reflect the latest data from the Montana COVID website, along with supplemental data received from county health departments.

Note: As new COVID-19 cases continue in Montana, the disparity between state data from DPHHS and local data from county health departments also continues.

MTN has decided to use a combination of these sources to deliver more accurate information across all media platforms. We feel this is a more truthful accounting of the situation in Montana.

Local county health departments may be alerted to cases before Montana DPHHS. As those counties share that information with the public, MTN feels it should be reflected in our reporting. Using that local data means there will be times when MTN coronavirus data does not align with the state report.
