News and video from Montana This Morning for Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

The Pondera County Health Department was notified on Tuesday by the Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services that a woman in her 40s tested positive for COVID-19 in Pondera County. No further identifying information will be released due to federal privacy laws. The health department said in a Facebook post: "The Pondera County Health Department is actively following up to learn more details about the individual’s exposure risk and travel history, and to identify and communicate with anyone who may have been in close contact with the patient. At this time it is not believed to be community spread."

The agency said if you were a close contact of the woman, you would have been contacted by public health for an interview. If you did not receive a call from Public Health today in regards to this case then you still need to be abiding by the Stay at Home directive, washing your hands often, and only going out for essential activities.
