• Stay at home and isolate yourself from others if they have any symptoms.
• Contact their supplier immediately if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 to determine the next steps, including testing.
The health department also encourages anyone who tests positive for COVID-1
Neiman said the health department has pledged to inform the public that it may have been exposed to COVID-19 and to monitor for symptoms, as many people attended the event and tracking contracts would be impossible for its team.
“Meetings of this nature and at this time can quickly become super distributors,” Neiman said in a statement. “Currently, the focus is not on whether the event was right or wrong, we just need to quickly identify the cases and their close contacts in order to have a chance to control the disease and prevent an outbreak.”
The concert was attended by three groups, vendors, fireworks and the participation of the American Republic and the candidate for governor of the Republican Party Greg Gianforte.
Event organizers worked with Lewis and Clark Public Health before the event, and county health officials signed a plan to protect attendees from the virus. After the event, Neiman said that the precautionary measures were not observed and that she was working with the district prosecutor to hold the organizers accountable.
