Traveling to Montana During the Pandemic

Updated August 30, 2021

It is legal and possible to travel to Montana during the pandemic, with no real restrictions. However, like much of the United States, Montana has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases due to the Delta variant. 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 showing a spike in case due to the Delta variant. The Montana state government has a page that tracks active cases by county, vaccinations, and much more data. The entire state is experiencing open community infection and is behind in vaccination rates. In short, there are benefits to traveling to Montana during a pandemic (low population density) but also associated risks.

State, Local, & Federal Restrictions

There is no restriction on or quarantine required of those visiting Montana. In addition, there is no 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
