The Toole County Health Department recently confirmed that two of their residents have died of COVID-19, bringing Montana's death total to four.

Jim Tomlin was 77-years-old when he became Lincoln County’s first case of coronavirus and, later, Montana’s first coronavirus death.

On Sunday, The Montana State Department of Health and Human Services announced a second death in Montana from COVID 19.

Governor Steve Bullock issued the following statement:

I’m saddened to hear that a second Montanan has died from COVID-19. No matter in which community we live, the impact of each loss of life has a ripple effect all throughout the state and serves as a reminder of how serious this disease is. Our hearts go out to the family, friends, and community of this Montanan."
