Self-Quarantine for Persons Arriving in Montana
Starting June 1st, the travel quarantine will no longer apply for Montana per the Governor's Directive.
Any person coming to Montana from another state or country for a non-work-related purpose must immediately self-quarantine for 14 days. If a person will be present in Montana for fewer than 14 days, that person must self-quarantine for the duration of the visit.
Any person who has already arrived in Montana from another state or country for a non-work- related purpose before the date of this Directive must immediately self-quarantine for the remainder of a 14-day period beginning on the date of their arrival in Montana, or until their departure from Montana—whichever is sooner.
The Montana Department of Commerce will advise persons listing hotels, rental properties, or other short-term rentals in Montana—including but not limited to listings on such services as Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway, and related services—to include notice of the mandatory quarantine for travelers from another state or country.
These quarantine restrictions do not apply in the following circumstances:
o to persons traveling through Montana en route to another destination; or o to public health, public safety, or healthcare workers
These quarantine restrictions shall apply to Montana residents and non-residents alike.

ONLINE EDUCATION RESOURCES
NAR, McKissock, The CE Shop and Interact CE are all great resources for online education, informative webinars and financial planning. You can find many trainings on how to use this current time to build your business.
In response to the growing concerns about COVID-19, Montana Association of REALTORS® (MAR) has created a guide of resources to help you stay informed. Information from Federal, State and local governments change daily (sometimes multiple times a day), so know what the recommendations are and reach out to your local public health officials if you have questions or concerns.
Agents, Brokers, and all office staff should be on the same page with safety precautions and guidelines that your office is following. Ultimately, you need to work with your clients to make sure they are comfortable in the process.
