Montana reported three new COVID-19 deaths on Thursday and a new single-day record for new cases, according to the Montana Response COVID-19 tracking map.

The new deaths are related to a nursing care facility in Billings.

Canyon Creek Memory Care posted a statement on its Facebook page about the deaths:

Yellowstone County health officials reported three new deaths, although one of the cases will not be reflected on the Thursday state update. The number of deaths statewide now stands at 26.

Here's the full press release from RiverStone Health:

With deep sorrow, RiverStone Health, Yellowstone County’s public health department, reports three more COVID-19 related deaths. The deaths stem from the COVID-19 outbreak at Canyon Creek Memory Care.

On Monday, July 6, a woman in her 70s passed away.

On Wednesday, July 8, a woman in her 80s also died.

On Thursday, July 9, a man in his 90s passed away.

All three individuals passed away at Canyon Creek Memory Care. To protect the privacy of the individuals and family members, RiverStone Health will not release further information about the deaths.

The deaths of the two women who passed away are reflected on the state COVID-19 map. The death of the man who died will be reflected on the map tomorrow.

“Tragically, three more COVID-19 infected Yellowstone County residents have passed away. Families are experiencing the profound grief of losing a loved one and we mourn with them,” said John Felton, Yellowstone County Health Officer and RiverStone Health President/CEO. “With the passing of these residents, we are reminded that our most vulnerable community members – elderly, immunocompromised, and those with chronic conditions – are especially at risk and we must continue to take measures to protect them from this disease.”

He went on to say, “We are facing many challenges in this pandemic and I want to thank individuals and the businesses that are working so hard to adhere to the 3 Ws – washing hands, watching distance and wearing a mask. Our ability to follow these basic infection control measures can reduce serious illness, and death of the people we love, and the death of those loved by others. What we do now determines where we are in 3-4 weeks. We all need to recommit to taking care of each other.”

To date, 377 Yellowstone County residents have been infected with COVID-19 and seven have died.

The number of new cases set a new record at 96, with 46 of those cases reported in Yellowstone County. The previous single day record of new cases was 80 on July 6.

Lake County reported 14 new cases, and Big Horn County reported nine new cases. Gallatin County added seven new cases while Cascade and Custer counties each reported four new cases.

Two new cases were reported in each Lincoln, Missoula and Ravalli counties, and one new case was added in Beverhead, Hill, Lewis and Clark, Madison, Roosevelt, and Stillwater counties.
