Gov. Steve Bullock has scheduled a press briefing Wednesday to "address an uptick in new cases as the state reopens and to reiterate that Montanans are still at risk of contracting or spreading the virus and must continue to stay vigilant."

Bullock will also announce a new loan deferment program aimed to "help medium and larger sized businesses free up capital and promote sustainability over the long term," according to a press release.

The briefing is scheduled at 3 p.m.

Earlier on Wednesday, state health officials announced the 20th COVID-19 related death and 18 new cases statewide.
