Montana COVID-19 update: Feb. 4, 2022

On Friday, 4,374 new COVID cases were recorded in Montana. According to the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, there are now 15,713 active cases in the state (DPHHS).

“As previously stated, the DPHHS COVID-19 laboratory reporting system suffered technical challenges, which impeded the process of entering the new case and test data into the system and publishing it on the COVID-19 dashboard. The reporting system’s technical concerns were resolved early this week.”

“These difficulties, however, influenced the number of new reports added to the dashboard that would have regularly happened during the week. The bulk of this week’s news reports is reflected in today’s number of new cases and fresh tests.”

The current number of COVID-19-related hospitalizations is 328, down from 338 on Thursday. The total number of hospitalizations in Montana due to the virus is 11,161.

Today’s DPHHS report has two new deaths: one in Cascade County and one in Teton County. Both happened in January.
