Here is the latest information on COVID in Montana as of Sunday, November 29:

  • New Cases: 874 (-82 from state data)
  • Total Cases: 61,995 (+194 from state)
  • Active 16,636: (-394 from state)
  • Deaths 692: (+21 from state)
  • Recoveries: 44,667 (+567 from state)
  • Current Hospitalizations: 461
  • Total Hospitalizations: 2,561

The numbers reported above by MTN News reflect the latest data from the Montana COVID website, along with supplemental data from county health departments. The disparity between data from the Department of Public Health & Human Services (DPHHS) and data from county health departments continues to grow as COVID-19 cases escalate in Montana. MTN has decided to use a combination of these sources to deliver more accurate and timely information. As a result, numbers reported by MTN will not align precisely with the DPHHS figures.

VACCINE: DPHHS has released a draft vaccine distribution plan; there will be three phases of distribution. DPHHS says the vaccine will not be mandatory, and that everyone who wants to get it will be able to eventually. Click here for details.

CONTEXT: 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 experience more severe symptoms, and some do require hospitalization. Every person who tests positive for COVID, however, 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. The CDC released data in late August which emphasizes that people with contributing or chronic medical conditions are at much greater risk of dying from COVID-19. Click here to read more.
