Madison County offices shut down

At a Special Commission Meeting, on Friday, March 20, 2020, the Madison County Board of Commissioners made and passed a motion to restrict public access to all Madison County buildings until further notice, effective March 20, 2020, at 5 p.m.  Services will still be available by telephone, email, or by U.S.

First Madison County COVID-19 case

Madison County’s first COVID-19 case was confirmed. 

The woman and her family have been isolated. The confirmation is not a surprise to local healthcare providers. As testing becomes more available, more confirmations are likely to follow. This does not mean that everyone who has coronavirus symptoms will or should be tested.

Empty shelves

Even before the coronavirus was ever confirmed on Montana soil, Madison County was feeling the effects. The grocery stores in Ennis, Twin Bridges and Sheridan have all been experiencing unprecedented demand, particularly for sanitizers and paper products.
