Public Health Reminder of COVID-19 during events
The Unified Command group for Sweet Grass County and City of Big Timber Emergency Operations Center continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. As Montana enters into phase two of the re-opening, the number of people infected with Covi-19 has risen in Montana. In an effort to protect the health of our state and community, the members of the Unified Command are reminding people that events or gatherings of more than 50 people are not recommended if social distancing cannot be maintained.
The EOC would like to encourage those planning events of greater than 50 people in Sweet Grass County to consult the Governor’s Phase 2 reopening plan and the Center for Disease Control for suggestions. We would also encourage those planning events to contact The Sweet Grass County Public Health Nurse at (406) 932 5449 or [email protected]. The Public Health Nurse has a form available to assist you during event planning and they can provide assistance in reviewing your plan.
