The CCHD said in a Facebook post: "We know this is a lot of new cases for our county. We are right around two weeks after Labor Day weekend, so we did expect an increase in case numbers. But we have also received many reports of people with mild illness going to work, school, or even parties/events, despite their symptoms. Please, send people home if they are sick and do not realize on their own that they should self-isolate! Now is not the time to be complacent—let’s work together to keep our schools, businesses, and community functioning smoothly. Stay home, wash your hands, wear a mask, disinfect surfaces." According to the CCHD, as of Tuesday there 28 active cases at Great Falls Public Schools; two of those cases were new on Tuesday, both students.

CDC: 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. According to the CDC, an estimated 94% of all COVID-related deaths in the nation were people who had contributing medical conditions and diseases. The CDC report states: "For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death." The report states that the most common underlying medical conditions that contributed to COVID-related deaths include respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, asthma, COPD, and influenza; diabetes; hyptertensive diseases; and heart disease.
