There were 1,063 new cases and 27 new deaths added to the total on the Montana COVID-19 tracking site on Friday morning. The data below is from the official Montana website on October 30:

CASES & RECOVERIES: There have been 31,916 cumulative cases, with 21,102 people now listed as recovered.
HOSPITALIZATIONS: There are 357 current hospitalizations, and a cumulative total of 1,327 hospitalizations.
DEATHS: The cumulative number of deaths in Montana is now 364.
ACTIVE CASES: There are currently 10,450 active COVID-19 cases in Montana.
TESTING: There were 5,022 completed tests, for a new cumulative state-wide total of 492,629.

Numbers reported by the state each day occasionally differ from those reported by county public health departments due to periodic lag times in reporting data to the state. We encourage people to check the official website and/or Facebook page of their respective county health department for any information that is not yet included in the state's daily updates. Based on additional data from county health departments, MTN News reports the following:

  • Total Cases: 32,401 (+485 from state)
  • Active: 9,698 (-752 from state)
  • Deaths: 381 (+17 from state)
  • Recoveries: 22,322 (+1,220 from state)




It's important to note that not every person who tests positive actually becomes ill or exhibits symptoms. Many do not; of those who do become sick, some experience mild symptoms and do not require hospitalization. Others, however, do require hospitalization, as noted in the daily update on the number of people hospitalized. However, every person who tests positive for COVID-19 has the potential to spread the virus to other people, including family members and friends, which is why public health officials continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask and maintain at least the recommended six feet of "social distance" when in public.

The federal Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) released data in late August which emphasizes that people with contributing or underlying medical conditions are at much greater risk of dying from COVID-19.

A summary of COVID-19 survival rates is shown below; the summary is one of five based on several scenarios. The CDC data and scenarios can be found here.

COVID-19 Survival Rates

  • Age 0-19: 99.997%
  • Age 20-49: 99.98%
  • Age 50-69: 99.5%
  • Age 70+: 94.6%

The CDC says the scenarios are intended to advance public health preparedness and planning, and are not predictions or estimates of the expected impact of COVID-19. The parameter values in each scenario will be updated and augmented over time, as the agency learns more about the epidemiology of COVID-19. The update from September 10th is based on data received by the CDC through August 8.
