Results for a Gallatin County person who was tested for the novel coronavirus following travel to China have come back negative, according to a press release from the City-County Health Department.

Earlier this week the Gallatin City-County Health Department said a person was being monitored for the virus after traveling to mainland China and then falling ill after returning to Montana. This is the first patient who was under investigation in Montana.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta announced the negative test result Friday.
