On today’s episode: The state of Montana is slowly reopening and today retail shops and businesses like salons, spas and tattoo parlors welcomed their first customers in weeks. Bars and restaurants will open next week and schools could open on May 7 but it appeared most if not all Northwest Montana districts would instead extend remote learning through the remainder of the academic year.
