As of April 15, 2020, at 6:00 PM, there are zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Granite County. Nine tests have been conducted through Granite County Medical Center; all results were negative. For various reasons, an additional 9 Granite County residents have been tested out of county; all results were negative. As we enter our fifth week of staying at home, signs of stress may be beginning for some of you and increasing for others. Isolation, increased alcohol and drug use, unhealthy eating habits, and lack of exercise can all increase anxiety and stress levels. If you feel this happening to you, the Granite County Sheriff, along with the Granite County Board of Health, would like you to remember there are resources available to help with those feelings. Granite County is partnered with Western Montana Mental Health and they are offering online/phone therapy from the comfort of your home. If you are feeling overwhelmed by anxiety or stress, or if someone you care about is having these issues you can reach out for a free confidential assessment.
