    In its ordinance, the Tribal Council said the decision was based on the recent spike in covid-19 cases in the state, and in an effort to protect members and residents of the Blackfeet Reservation.
    I didn't realize Montana had a lot of cases.

    It always seems that unless it’s happening right next to them, it’s a problem “somewhere” else.
    I hope people start realizing that the virus problem is still a problem.
    The news reports, if accurate, don’t paint a hopeful picture.

    I looked it up and don't see large number of cases in the Glacier area.
    I'm well aware of what's going on in other states.
    Pretty sure most members here realize the virus is a serious problem.

    We changed our vacation to Great Smokey Mountains and stopped by Cherokee today. Quite a few businesses had signs out that they were not opening for the season....signs did mentions few members getting sick and one dying. I'm guessing Cherokee has more traffic over all.

    All the east side entries to Glacier NP will be closed for the 2020 season.

    Montana virus cases have surged in the past few weeks with the total number doubling. Total is now 863 cases with 237 active. We were below 20 active cases in early June. The number of hospitalizations and deaths have not seen a similar surge; 22 total deaths and 11 people currently in hospital. All 22 deaths were people with an underlying medical issue and the the surge now seems to be among younger people, hence the low hospitialization rate. 7.7% of the state's population has been tested which is more than double what it was when the surge started.

    Yellowstone is very busy, I am told. We just spent the weekend riding in Beartooth Pass and Big Horn Mountains area. Red Lodge looked like any other summer weekend and a large number of motorcycles were out and about.

    Good to hear Montana shows active cases. Iowa does the same and this gives you a better idea of the current situation.
    I have been trying to find a Colorado site that shows the current active cases, not just the total.
    Anyone have a good Colorado site showing this info? Also a Nebraska site.
    We may go in July and have been planning a route through counties with low numbers.

    It's odd the county info for Iowa does not show because it's available on the state website.
    Edit: If you click on (1) for Iowa it takes you to the Official Iowa site.

    Decided to get tested today.
    Sure is nice to live in a small town.
    Registered on the state website, called the hospital for a appointment time and went out a couple hours later.
    Two mile drive to the hospital and only spent about five minutes inside.
    Free test.
    Is the test free in every state?

    Basically Colorado State and El Paso Couny -where I live- are back to where we were 4 to 6 weeks ago.

    The campgrounds in my area I have seen run at capacity on weekends...and nearly no one wearing a face mask.

    They claim free at drive in sites. A few reports of folks being told to go to a hospital and then receiving a very high invoice soon after.

    I think early on if you went to your Dr or hospital you were billed. Don't know for sure.
    Now there's quite a few Test Iowa sites spread around the state so you don't have to drive far.

    Yellowstone is very busy, I am told. We just spent the weekend riding in Beartooth Pass and Big Horn Mountains area. Red Lodge looked like any other summer weekend and a large number of motorcycles were out and about.

    Having heard of other's cycle travel throughout that "Region" during the Rally timeframe; how did it work out?

    Anyone stop in Great Falls and say "hi"?

    Mid-week vs weekend, camp sites vs other lodging, restaurant's, closures, ect.

    Knowing that some folks modified their planned trip just for the riding itself. Expecting it wasn't a large number though.

    I was not there at that time, but I followed the weather during rally week, and it was very cold, and there was some rain. Not inviting to camp at all. Some years are like that, so better luck next year!
