THE NEW NORMAL

CLOSING UP SHOP IN A SMALL TOWN

Urban and rural, fortune 500 companies and mom- and-pop shops – COVID-19 is affecting every business in the world.

Madison County offices shut down

At a Special Commission Meeting, on Friday, March 20, 2020, the Madison County Board of Commissioners made and passed a motion to restrict public access to all Madison County buildings until further notice, effective March 20, 2020, at 5 p.m.  Services will still be available by telephone, email, or by U.S.

Hardship Fears

The coronavirus has dealt a major blow to the economy of southwest Montana. The enforced closure of all bars and restaurants along with the decision by many small businesses to shut up shop, means added pressure on an already struggling workforce. That coupled with the threat of illness is putting added pressure on many low income families.

Coronavirus in Madison County?

Madison County is on the brink of confirming its first coronavirus patient. A number of people have contacted the Madison Valley Medical Center with COVID-19-like symptoms. At least one has been tested for the virus and doctors are awaiting results from the state laboratory in Helena.
