On August 12, Governor Bullock issued a directive mandating face coverings in all public and private K-12 schools in counties with four or more active cases. Governor Bullock also announced that $10 million will be used to create the Live Entertainment Grant Program to ensure the long-term profitability of the live entertainment industry. To ensure entertainment companies can survive longer shutdowns and postponements, the program will provide up to 25% of a company`s gross revenue in 2019, or a maximum of $1 million per applicant. Applicants must derive at least 33% of their 2019 revenue from live events and less than 10% of last year`s revenue. Bars, restaurants and other establishments whose main activity is something other than live performance are not eligible. Applications are open from 12. August on covidrelief.mt.gov and are assessed on a first-come, first-served basis. The Montana Department of Justice`s Bureau of Consumer Protection has the authority to enforce civil and criminal violations of these laws.

On January 13, newly elected Montana Governor Greg Gianforte issued Executive Order No. 2-2021, declaring a new state of emergency.
In conjunction with Executive Order 2-2021, Governor Gianforte promulgated the Executive Order 2-2021 Implementation Directive, which removes restrictions on businesses imposed by the previous government. In particular, under Governor Bullock`s administration, restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries and casinos had to operate at 50% capacity and close at 22:00, with the exception of breweries that had to close early. In addition, Bullock limited the size limit for public gatherings to 25 people. Governor Gianforte`s directive lifts these restrictions. However, this amendment does not replace district health department orders, which have issued their own capacity or time restrictions. In addition, the state`s mask obligation remains unchanged.
