We welcome you to enjoy the fresh air and open spaces of northeast Montana, as long as you do so responsibly.

While visiting our spectacular region of Montana, please be aware of the following protocols and safety precautions:

Illness Prevention

This is a rapidly changing public health situation and it’s important to stay informed by following reputable sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.

The CDC recommends that older adults or people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions who are at risk for disease should consider postponing nonessential travel. If you are feeling healthy and ready to travel, the best way to prevent infection from COVID-19 and any respiratory virus is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The same preventative measures that are recommended during cold and flu season will also help to protect against coronavirus:

Local Business Toolkit

Montana Aware is a statewide effort designed to help Montana’s tourism partners and local businesses slow the spread of COVID-19 by promoting safety measures for those traveling in the state. As part of this initiative, the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development has developed a toolkit of resources to help you educate residents and visitors on safe travel best practices.

The toolkit contains print and digital templates that may be customized to reflect any local restrictions specific to your county or community. We encourage you to use these pieces to spread the word and build awareness of these important travel messages.

Usage Guidelines

For the Montana Aware campaign to have maximum impact, consistency is key. Regardless of where or how consumers encounter the campaign, graphics and messages should remain the same. As such, we ask that the Montana Aware logo, graphic elements and core safety messages not be modified from the versions available here. Select materials do provide customization opportunities for messages specific to your organization.
