BOZEMAN, Mont. – Governor-elect Greg Gianforte yesterday received a COVID-19 briefing from Major General Matthew T. Quinn at Fort Harrison.
“General Quinn has been at the helm of Montana’s response to this pandemic since March, and I value the experience he brings to my COVID-19 Response Team. While we’re both optimistic about a forthcoming COVID-19 vaccine, we also know there’s room to improve Montana’s response to this health and economic crisis, and Montanans are counting on us,” Gianforte said.
Also participating in the briefing via Zoom was Jim Murphy, bureau chief of Communicable Disease Control and Prevention; Stacey Anderson, lead epidemiologist for the Communicable Disease Control and Prevention Bureau; Delila Bruno, division administrator for Montana Disaster and Emergency Services; and Dr. Greg Holzman, the State Medical Officer.
Quinn, the adjutant general for Montana, will provide the governor-elect with regular briefings on COVID-19 and the state’s response.
