Bullock Announces Travel Ban Will be Lifted & Phase II Will Start June 1st

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – Governor Steve Bullock held a press call Tuesday, May 19 and announced the state will enter Phase Two and allow for all travel without a 14-day quarantine starting June 1.

During the call, Bullock discussed what will change as Montanans enter Phase Two.

“Under Phase Two effective June 1, restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries and casinos…gyms, indoor fitness classes, pools and hot tubs, bowling allies and other places of assembly can operate at 75% percent of capacity.”

Bullock then lifted the mandatory 14-day quarantine for travelers as long as they do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

“…The requirement that visitors to Montana mandatorily quarantine for 14 days will be lifted on June 1st as well…We’ve determined that as Montana enters the summer months, there are more effective and enhanced mitigation strategies that we can engage in.”

Bullock said due to the state’s quick actions at the interim of COVID-19 and the significant increase in Montana’s COVID-19 testing capability, we are ready to make this move.
