BOZEMAN- As numbers across the state and in Gallatin County continue to rise, Governor Steve Bullock will visit the Community Health Partners Medical Clinic in Bozeman with a focus on Medicaid expansion.

The governor will host a roundtable with health officials to discuss how COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of removing barriers towards getting needed health care.
