Whitefish COVID Cares
As Montana reopens to out of state visitors, we are excited to gradually extend a heartfelt welcome to our guests. Our town has worked hard to stay healthy and we ask you to partner with us in taking good care of each other. We are joining our friends in Jackson Hole and other national park gateway towns with the message that we are dedicated to responsible tourism in three ways:
1. CLEAN - Wash your hands and sanitize often
2. CAREFUL - Practice 6-feet social distancing and wear cloth face coverings in public settings
3. CONNECTED - Stay informed at WhitefishCovidCares.com
Thank you for keeping our community safe and resilient. And for showing respect for our fragile town.
