Traveling to Montana During the Pandemic

Updated July 5, 2021

Montana, like much of the United States, has seen a dramatic fall in COVID-19 cases since early January. It is legal and possible to travel to Montana during the pandemic, with no real restrictions. However, it is incumbent on travelers to make sure they remain safe themselves and keep others safe. And it is incumbent on us to take the proper safety precautions when you travel with us.

Current Pandemic Situation in Montana

As of this writing, the current situation in Montana (as with most of the United States) is much improved from early January. The Montana state government has a page that tracks active cases by county, vaccinations, and much more data. While the entire state is still experiencing open community infection, it is much reduced from its previous highs. In terms of vaccination, at the time of this writing Montana is slightly lower than average for percentage of the population having been fully vaccinated – it is neither doing especially well nor especially poorly.

State, Local, & Federal Restrictions

There is no restriction on or quarantine required of those visiting Montana. In addition, there is no longer a statewide mask requirement and the governor has attempted to eliminate any private or local mask mandates in the state. There is a mask mandate on all federal land, including the two national parks, when indoors or when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Keeping Yourself and Others Safe

You can safely travel to Montana during the pandemic. Even if you are vaccinated, we suggest wearing a face mask when indoors and keeping social distance, for your own protection and that of others. Now is a superb time to explore the great outdoors, which is what makes Montana so appealing in the first place.
