GREAT FALLS — There were 622 new cases and six new deaths added to the total on the Montana COVID-19 tracking site on Monday morning. The data below is from the official Montana website on October 26:

  • TOTAL CASES & RECOVERIES: There have been 28,501 cumulative cases, with 18,343 people now listed as recovered.
  • HOSPITALIZATIONS: There are 360 current hospitalizations, and a cumulative total of 1,237 hospitalizations.
  • DEATHS: The cumulative number of deaths in Montana is now 303.
  • ACTIVE CASES: There are currently 9,855 active COVID-19 cases in Montana.
  • TESTING: There were 10,718 completed tests, for a new cumulative state-wide total of 476,325.

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:

  • Deaths: 321 (+18 from state)
  • Active: 9,002 (-853 from state)
  • Recoveries: 19,476 (1,133 from state)
  • Total Cases: 28,799 (+298 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.
