On Wednesday, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock is expected to reveal changes to the Montana stay-at-home order he put in place on March 26.

Sources close to he governor told Q2 that Bullock will hold a press conference Wednesday, although the time has not been announced.

After almost four weeks of life altering directives, it's expected that Bullock will start easing some of those restrictions.

They were put in place by the state and Yellowstone County in an effort to prevent and control the spread of the respiratory disease COVID-19.

Bullock's directives ordered people to stay at home, non-essential businesses to cease operations, and prohibited most activities and travel.

Businesses deemed to be essential have been able to operate and people have been able to participate in outdoor activities.

Last week, Bullock said he was planning to announce a "phased reopening" of Montana before Friday, when his orders expire.

Bullock's news conference will be broadcast live on air, online and on Facebook on Q2.
