According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, less severe COVID cases means less masking is needed. In Montana, there are now 36 counties that are free to go without masks indoors compared to 16 last week. The number of counties with masking recommendations still in place decreased from 44 counties last week to 20 this week. Last week brought the first statewide increase in vaccination since January. Of the eligible population, 55% of Montanans are fully vaccinated.
