It’s not time just yet to don the party hats and gather together in a crowd to celebrate.

Although the latest figures from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) are encouraging, it is a fluctuating game. As of Wednesday, the projected Montana fatality rate is up to 81 from 22 although it is still well below the original projection of 266. 

The only way we can make these figures fluctuate and keep them lower is by continuing to observe the directives handed out to us, directives that will be in place until late May at the earliest. 

Carbon County has three cases as of Wednesday. Let’s keep it this way. 

Patience is a virtue and we need it in spades right now. 

We cannot relax. 

We cannot become complacent. 

This is our earth.

Stay Safe And Stay Inside.
