Montana Gov. Steve Bullock issued an executive directive to close all “non-essential businesses.” The mandate, announced on March 26, 2020, effectively requires Montana residents employed by non-essential businesses to stay home.

Citing authority granted to him under the state constitution, Gov. Bullock, announced all businesses and operations in Montana — “except for essential businesses and operations as defined in the directive” — are to stop all activities in the state effective at 12:01 a.m. on March 28, 2020.

For the complete list of “Essential Businesses and Operations” as well as non-essential businesses and operations see the directive at:
