Montana state health officials reported 23 additional deaths and 624 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, according to the Montana Response COVID-19 tracking map.

The state death toll increased from 252 on Tuesday to 275 on Wednesday, according to state health officials. Daniels and Deer Lodge county each reported the first COVID-19 death in those counties. Other deaths were reported in Hill County, Powder River County, Roosevelt County, Sanders County and Yellowstone County.

RiverStone Health in Yellowstone County issued this press release Wednesday morning:

RiverStone Health, Yellowstone County’s public health department, reports another Yellowstone County resident has died due to COVID-19 related illness.

On Tuesday, October 20, a man in his 80s, who resided in a Yellowstone County senior living residence, passed away in a Yellowstone County hospital.

To protect the privacy of the deceased and his family, RiverStone Health will not release further information.

This most recent death is reflected on the Wednesday, October 21 state COVID-19 tracking map.

“As yet another family grieves the loss of life taken too soon, I offer my heartfelt sympathy and hope that memories of happier days bring comfort. Words alone cannot express the depth of the tragedy that the pandemic has had on the families of the deceased and our community as a whole,” said John Felton, Yellowstone County Health Officer, President and CEO of RiverStone Health.

“As illness and death from COVID-19 continue to mount in the community, I ask everyone to practice the simple measures of wearing a mask, washing hands and staying at least six feet away from others to help slow the spread of this disease. Because influenza and COVID-19 have many of the same symptoms and it is possible to have COVID-19 and the flu at the same time, I urge everyone to get a flu shot. While the flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19, getting a flu vaccine will reduce the risk of getting the flu,” said Felton. .

To date, 5,384 Yellowstone County residents have been infected with COVID-19 and 82 have died.

The cumulative total number of cases has reached 24,712 in Montana, and there have been 15,085 recoveries. There are now 9,352 active cases of the virus in the state.

There are currently 345 people hospitalized for treatment of the virus, and the total number of hospitalizations has reached 1,068.

The number of tests performed since the pandemic began in March has reached 447,994, an increase of 2,973 during the previous 24-hour reporting period, according to state health officials.

Yellowstone County reported the highest number of new cases Wednesday with 139. The county now has a cumulative total of 5,384 cases of the virus, and there are 1,962 active cases.

Gallatin County added 57 new cases, and Flathead County reported 54. Missoula County added 45 new cases, and Roosevelt County reported 43 new COVID-19 cases.

The remaining new cases were spread across 36 Montana counties.
