My vaccine experience

Two weeks ago I turned 18 and along with the excitement of this important date, there was better news. I was now eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine because I am Latina; in Montana Latinos and other people of color are priority groups for receiving the shots because we are more vulnerable to the virus.

Politics of a pandemic

It has been an interesting year of politics amidst a pandemic. Gov. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) decided to roll-back the statewide mask mandate created by former Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock, who termed-out and vied for a Senate seat.

Maintain the mask

The face covering rule in Gallatin County will be extended until April 20, as will the isolation and quarantine rule and rule for visitation at nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and senior and assisted living facilities, per a recent Gallatin City-County Board of Health meeting.

Connecting…

Many Americans have been highly adaptable to Covid times in regard to shifting to online work, especially since they got to have more creative wardrobe choices.

Determined despite delay

COVID-19 has surfaced as an early obstacle of the 2021 Lady Bighorns Basketball season. Several critical practices were cancelled and the first game will need to be rescheduled due to a positive test result on the team, head coach Taylor Cummings explained.
