Vaccinations and tests

Bozeman Deaconess Hospital employees recently began receiving COVID-19 vaccinations just as area leaders anticipate a holiday surge. Taylor Rose, director of Clinical Services & Operations Bozeman Health Big Sky Medical Center said holiday staffing looks good, the medical center is not currently at capacity and preparations have been made.

‘Invisible heroes’

Writer’s note: My mom, the laboratory QA safety specialist at the state lab, used to walk my sister and I through the halls and different components of the lab when we were little. I thought Debbie was the coolest woman then, especially after I started hearing about all the ultras she ran, and still feel that way now.

COVID in the community

As COVID-19 case numbers surge all over the county, Big Sky proves no exception. Gallatin City-County Health Department contract tracing in the area has led to two week quarantines and an impact on the high school. Lone Peak High School’s (LPHS) varsity volleyball team’s quarantine ends Oct. 24th.

Mitigating the COVID-19 surge

This last week, Gallatin County saw the largest spike in COVID-19 case totals since the pandemic began. Other counties in Montana are seeing similar increases, as noted during Governor Steve Bullock’s Tuesday afternoon press call. In fact, 31 other states have seen spikes.
