Montana Gov. Steve Bullock announced on April 4 that a sixth Montanan has died from COVID-19. The notification of death was provided by the Missoula City-County Health Department.

“Each loss of life impacts another community and another family – and indeed, all of us through our shared bond as Montanans,” Bullock said in a press release. “We stay at home to slow the spread and save lives, and to protect frontline health care workers in both urban and rural communities.”
