Total Shutdown

Madison County health officials have ordered the complete shutdown of bars and restaurants in a bid to slow the spread of the virus. Food take away and delivery services will still be permitted. The decision means pretty much all nightlife will grind to a halt. It follows similar moves in Bozeman, Butte, Billings, Helena and Missoula.
