Another local event that was originally planned for today (10/13) also had to be postponed due to "health restraints." According to a press release, Bill Clagg of the Billings Kiwanis Club announced they will postpone the 100th Anniversary picnic at Kiwanis Park until they can "celebrate at a time and location participants can meet safely, hopefully soon."

Yellowstone County public health officer John Felton announced on Monday that a new order would go into place at 8am on Wednesday (10/14) that would limit physical gatherings to 25 people.
