Coronavirus Vaccine -- VAULT IMAGE

HELENA, Mont. - The United States District Court for the District of Montana, Missoula Division, granted a motion for a preliminary injunction against HB 702.

HB 702 prohibits discrimination in Montana based on vaccination status of any disease or possession of an immunity passport by a person, governmental entity, employer or public accommodation.

The Montana Nurses Association (MNA) said the ruling temporarily prohibits the State of Montana from enforcing HB 702 against COVID-19 vaccine requirements in Montana healthcare facilities that receive Medicare or Medicaid Funding.

The ruling only applies within those healthcare facilities.

MNA filed a lawsuit over the state vaccination law, saying it put nurses at risk, compromises safe healthcare working conditions and obstructs in providing healthcare in Montana.
