The Gallatin City-County Health Department says it will review proposed revisions of the emergency rule that was created on March 18, 2020 and consider extending the rule to April 17, 2020.

GCCHD will consider the change at its regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, 7 AM, March 26, 2020.

GCCHD shared the following information in a press release:

In addition, the Board will consider:

● Adding restrictions prohibiting operation of personal care establishments such as salons, nail studios, barbershops, tanning salons, beauty parlors, and body art establishments (like tattoo and piercing parlors)

● Adding restrictions on regular services or other routine gatherings at houses of worship unless the purpose of the gathering is related to assisting in the response, such as the provision of day care services.

The Board of Health will accept public comment in writing until 4:00 PM today via email at hs@gallatin.mt.gov. Due to social distancing requirements, the Board is encouraging the public to submit comments through email and view the meeting by streaming it online.
