BOZEMAN — As of Monday, July 6, 2020, at 12 p.m. Gallatin County has had 32 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 since Friday, July 3, for a cumulative total of 326.

There were 16 new cases reported on Saturday, 11 new cases reported on Sunday, and five new cases reported on Monday. One case that was previously assigned to Gallatin County was reassigned to another county.

There are 50 confirmed active cases and no current hospitalizations. There have been a total of 275 people recovered in Gallatin County. One person has died from COVID-19 complications. The new cases are located in the Gallatin Valley, Big Sky and West Yellowstone, and are related to contacts with known cases, community spread and travel.

Please note that local data on active cases may differ from the state map as the state map is only updated once daily and calculates active cases differently. The Gallatin City-County Health Department calculates the recovered case number as the number of total cases minus any active cases, current hospitalizations and deaths.

According to the press release:

"The bottom line with COVID-19 is that it is spreading readily and widely in Gallatin County. We need everyone to continue making good decisions to slow the spread of the virus in our communities.
● Keep distance from others whenever possible. Continue staying 6 feet away from others, avoiding groups of more than 50 people, consolidating trips to stores and other public settings, and keeping space from others even when we are in a group.
● When social distancing is difficult, wear a clean, well-fitting face covering.
● Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. That means many times a day for at least 20 seconds.
Say home if you are sick and call a healthcare provider. If you get tested or if you are informed by the Health Department that you are a close contact to a known case, you also need to stay home and limit contact with others.

The Gallatin City-County Health Department Call Center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to answer questions about COVID-19. Reach the Call Center by phone at 406-548-0123 or email at callcenter@readygallatin.com."
