President's Message: Recent COVID-19 Case in Missoula

March 14, 2020

Dear UM Family,

You may have seen MUS Commissioner Clayton Christian’s announcement this evening that he has tested presumptive positive for COVID-19. The announcement indicated suspected exposure during the Board of Regents meeting in Dillon earlier this month. As you know, there were a number of our UM colleagues, including myself, at the BOR meeting. Please know that we are reaching out to those individuals and we will follow the guidance and take appropriate actions recommended by medical professionals.

There are now number of COVID-19 cases in Montana. I want to encourage every member of the UM Family to be vigilant in self-monitoring and to contact your medical provider with any questions.

We will share additional information as it is available.
