The Montana government remains at home on Sunday as part of a gradual and gradual reopening of the state, Governor Steve Bullock announced today.
Its first phase measures described in a statement include the possibility for local school districts to resume classroom learning starting May 7.
Places of worship can become operational on April 26 in a manner compatible with social separation between people who are not members of the same household.
Main Street and Retail businesses can become operational on April 27 or after if they can meet the requirements to limit capacity and maintain a strict physical distance. Employers should develop policies to ensure the safety of employees and customers, including telecommuting where possible, the application of social distancing protocols and other measures.
Restaurants, bars, breweries and distilleries can start providing some on-site services from May 4.
Businesses where groups gather without the possibility of social distance, including cinemas, gymnasiums and other gathering places, will remain closed.
The Montana travel quarantine will remain in effect.
“Our new standard is going to be different. This virus did not leave Montana. So, as we turn to support our main street businesses and bring more families to work during this time – as we should – we must also be sure to continue to take care of those around us and protect everything the world around us, ”said Bullock.
“Once we start reopening, we want to be able to stay open. Our personal responsibility to protect those around us – especially the most vulnerable – remains just as important as any time during this pandemic. “
