There were 588 new cases and one new death added to the total on the Montana COVID-19 tracking site on Sunday morning. The data below is from the official Montana website on October 18:

  • TOTAL CASES & RECOVERIES: There have been 22,821 cumulative cases statewide, with 13,441 people recovered.
  • HOSPITALIZATIONS: There are 331 current hospitalizations, and a cumulative total of 1,010 hospitalizations.
  • DEATHS: The cumulative number of deaths in Montana is at 241.
  • ACTIVE CASES: The state reports there are currently 9,139 active COVID-19 cases in Montana.
  • TESTING: There were 3,006 completed tests, for a new cumulative state-wide total of 431,134.

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 is reporting the following:

  • Deaths 258 (+17 from state)
  • Active 8460 (-679 from state)
  • Recoveries 14326 (+885 from state)
  • Total Cases 23044 (+223 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 does test 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.
