Figures reported by MTN reflect the most recent data from Montana’s COVID website, along with supplemental data received from county health departments.

Note: As new COVID-19 cases continue in Montana, the disparity between state data from DPHHS and local data from county health departments also continues.

MTN has decided to use a combination of these sources to provide more accurate information across all media platforms. We believe this is a more accurate explanation of the situation in Montana.

Local county health departments can be alerted to cases prior to Montana DPHHS. Since those counties share that information with the public, MTN believes it should be reflected in our reports. Using that local data means there will be times when MTN’s coronavirus data won’t line up with the state report.
