Montana state health officials reported one new death and 97 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, according to the Montana Response COVID-19 tracking map.

The death toll from the virus in Montana now stands at 40. The new death was linked to the Canyon Creek Memory Care facility in Billings where a deadly COVID-19 outbreak has now claimed 13 lives. Here's the full press release from RiverStone Health:

RiverStone Health, Yellowstone County’s public health department, is reporting another COVID-19 related death stemming from the outbreak at Canyon Creek Memory Care.

On Monday, July 20, a woman in her 90s passed away at Canyon Creek Memory Care.

To protect the privacy of the woman and her family, RiverStone Health will release no further information.

This most recent death in Yellowstone County is reflected on today’s state COVID-19 tracking map. Nearly every day since Monday, July 6, a resident from Canyon Creek has died, bringing the total number of deaths to 13.

“I am running out of words to express the sadness and tragedy that these deaths have created in our organization and our community. For those among us who still doubt the reality of COVID-19 and its impact on all of us, I encourage you to wear your mask, watch your distance, and wash your hands. Do these things not because I, or the governor, or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says to do so, but to honor these residents and their families that their deaths not be in vain,” said John Felton, Yellowstone County health officer and RiverStone Health president and CEO

To date, 731 Yellowstone County residents have been infected with COVID-19 and 18 have died.

Gallatin County added the most new cases with 18, followed by Yellowstone County and Flathead County with 14 new cases each.

Big Horn County added 12 new cases, and Lake County reported nine new cases. The remaining new cases were reported in 15 counties across the state. (See chart below)

There is a discrepancy between state health officials and health officials in Chouteau County. The Chouteau County Health Department is reporting on its Facebook page that the county has reported its first three cases of COVID-19 in recent days, but the cases were not reported as new cases on the state tracking map. County health officials said they are working with the state to "correct the error."

(Note: Local health departments often learn about results from private labs and updates their numbers before the state of Montana does, Additionally, there may also be differences in reporting criteria, so the local numbers may differ from those that appear on the Montana COVID-19 tracking map. MTN News includes the data reported by individual Montana counties, which may include cases not counted by the state and different methods for determining recoveries.)
