Blackfeet Shut Down Glacier's East Entrances Over COVID-19 Fears
The Blackfeet Nation will close off road access to Glacier National Park’s east entrances for the remainder of the tourism season, according to a resolution written Thursday. The tribal leaders’ decision was based on the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the state.
The Blackfeet Nation Tribal Business Council decriminalized medical marijuana use on the reservation last week. At the same meeting, the council declared a state of emergency in response to drug and alcohol abuse on the reservation.
