An Incident Management Team is now operating in Ravalli County in response to the COVID-19 threat. County Commissioner Jeff Burrows said that Dr. Carol Calderwood and County Health Nurse Karyn Johnston are members. He told KLYQ News that the group includes Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital and local school districts. He said the amount of rumors in the valley caused the move to provide "accurate, timely, information." The county is not closing bars and restaurants, but many businesses on their own have reduced hours and limited occupancy. The team will have updated information at the Ravalli County website or by calling (406) 375-6650.
Burrows said that so far no positive cases of the virus are reported in Ravalli County.
