As of April 1, every large daily publication in the state is facing newsroom furloughs intended to help their companies survive the crisis.
Policymakers and citizens don’t yet have a complete picture of how, where, and when Montana’s shuttered businesses and furloughed workers will see relief. Here’s what we do know.
“Clearly, there’s uncertainty,” said state Budget Director Tom Livers. “But the really good news is that we’re going into this period in good shape.”
The 6,000 filings represent just over 1% of Montana’s workforce.
“What we’re seeing in the grocery store is not a reflection of the entire food system.”
Health officials say they’re working to learn details of the patients’ exposure and travel history, as well as to identify anyone they may have been in close contact with.
Chief Justice also says at-risk Montanans should be excused from in-person jury duty.
