COVID-19 Testing Information for the Public

If you are a member of the public and are concerned about getting tested for COVID-19, please contact your primary care provider.

Montana state and local public health officials are monitoring the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation very closely.  Governor’s Coronavirus Task Force

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses, you can take simple steps to protect yourself and your family:

  • Follow Governor Bullock’s Directive to stay at home to slow the spread of COVID-19,
  • Avoid contact with sick people when possible,
  • Cover your cough and sneezes with the crook of your elbow or a tissue
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth and wash your hands frequently
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

Call ahead to a healthcare professional if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing.

You can contact your local county or tribal health department for questions regarding COVID-19, testing or what may be occurring in your community.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in many affected geographic areas. Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.
