COVID-19

The Elders played in Big Sky twice, including in 2018, when this photo was taken. “It's especially sentimental because the great Steve Phillips (on guitar in the photo) passed away in 2020 from COVID complications,” said Brian Hurlbut, executive director of the Arts Council of Big Sky.

Bringing the music back

Legendary guitar riffs; the beat of the drum; powerful, playful and beautiful vocals will once again be heard on summer nights in Big Sky – if all goes well. Those behind Music in the Mountains are vowing to do everything they can to bring the music back.

The connecting power of music extends like a thread throughout the community.

Big Sky School District update

The Big Sky School District (BSSD) board recently voted to extend the mask requirement in the school. The BSSD COVID-19 surveillance testing dashboard indicates a rise in cases from previous weeks. BSSD Superintendent Dr. Dustin Shipman said he does not have a theory on the origin of the cases.

The Gallatin County vaccine pivot

The Johnson and Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine administration has been paused by the United States Centers for Disease Control and the Federal Drug Administration due to rare but serious instances of blood clotting.

Gallatin City-County Health Officer Matt Kelley provided an update as to how that impacts the county.

The vaccination push

Sixty two doses of COVID-19 vaccine were delivered to Big Sky School District 72 faculty and staff. This came as a result of a March 17 vaccination clinic held in the Ophir Elementary School gym. The effort was a part of the federal allocation of vaccines earmarked for educators and school staff.
