In what might be one of the most over-the-top and draconian responses to coronavirus yet seen in Montana, Valley County is mandating that people wear government-issued pink arm bands in under to purchase products inside of stores. The measure, enforced by the Valley County Health Department, insists that store-owners keep customers out unless they have the pink arm-bands, which denote the customer has been in the area more than 14 days and submitted to quarantine protocol.

According to the flier produced by the Valley County Health Department, out-of-towners who lack the government-issued armbands will be prohibited from stores and residents are notified to call law enforcement if they do not comply.

The health department even issued a script to warn customers to flee, saying, “You are violating our Governor’s and Valley County’s Health Officer’s orders. I am happy to shop for you with curbside delivery. I will get the items for you and bring them to your car. If you don’t cooperate, you will force me to call law enforcement.”

The Valley County health officer’s dubiously unconstitutional order can be seen below.

You can see the order yourself on the Valley County Health Department Facebook page here.

Brian Burleson asked in the comments section of their Facebook page, “How do we know if they’re from out of town in the first place. Will they be wearing a large scarlet “O” on their chest?” It appears the answer is that out-of-town workers are mandated to stop at the health department, where they will ostensibly receive the arm bands.

Another commenter left the following photo, saying, “I think they have tried this once already…”

China utilizes wristbands to track coronavirus patients. It has GPS monitoring and is used to make sure that patients comply with quarantine mandates. For many Montanans, it’s strange to see similar measures to prevent out-of-area essential workers from being able to purchase their supplies at local retailers.

Update: In response to our reporting, the Valley County Commissioners offered the following apology and “retraction” of the health department’s flier.

  1. Walk out to the car, pick up the pump shotgun, rack a round into the chamber. Walk back into the store and relive them of their money, their clothes, their cell phones and their smugness’. You think this wont start happening if this BS is continued?

  2. Anyone in my age group watched the videos in school or at home of Russians standing in line for 1 roll of toilet paper and a bad of potatoes!! This is the closest to that We will let it get in our life. Time to get rid of all these politicians in office and elect our neighbors or run our selfs and take the pay cut to ensure our ways of life for our children and grandchildren! Wake up Montana!
    We all posted or thought something in the last 6 months about the news just spinning lies…. and now you act like leaches just absorbing the programming of media when death rates are still lower than the common flu. New York even admitted its coved rates are skewed and not all reported are coved confirmed!
    We have yet to see the repercussions of what we have already over reacted on…. wait til the stores reopen and not one of those workers want to return because they just got a 2k a month raise due to unemployment increases and they are already talking another stimulus!

  3. EVERY PERSON in that county should refuse to make a purchase inside that county. Drive to the next county over to make your purchases. Bankrupt them through 0 sales tax revenues.

  4. Wow! I’ve talked to both Dr. Mallard and Dr. Fahlgren before as they both are at the hospital in Glasgow. I live in Hinsdale. It’s hard to believe Dr. Mallard would go rogue and write up such a thing! She’s the only one who signed the “order.” Was this or was this not a coup d’etat effort? Who is Dr. Mallard challenging? This is not good for our area and is the most draconian effort I’ve seen in America so far! #neveragain

  5. Having grown up in Montana this is the saddest most despotic thing that I have ever seen.

    This rush to tyranny over what is essentially an overhyped bad cold makes me burn with a cold anger.

  6. In other words, people leaked this to the nation and the politicians got handed their butts. Vote them out or make sure they are fired anyway, because they will keep trying to sneak their despotic rules in the back door where they can’t do it openly.

  7. I was stationed at Glasgow AFB in the mid – 60’s. Absolutely loved the area. Great for hunting, visiting historic old towns even had distant relatives nearby.
    I cannot imagine Valley County changing this much.
    Very glad to see that this crappy piece of socialist control was thrown out.
    There is still hope.

  8. There’s a federal law for this, 18 USC 241. Maximum penalty is 10 years plus disqualification for office. It’s time for it to be put into effect for cases like this.

  9. What crazy nut thought this would be appropriate? Call law enforcement if someone doesn’t comply. We live in a country that has a Bill of Rights that supersedes this crap and stupid health department Nazis who dream this stuff up. In addition, Montana’s Governor – oh I better be careful, the Gestapo will be rounding me up and never heard of again.

  10. You need to find those in government perpetuating the Wu-Flu hoax and using it to repeal the US Constitution and physically remove them from government buildings by any means necessary. If local police try to hinder you then they can be placed under citizen’s arrest, disarmed and kept in their own jail till the Constitution has been restored to the area.

  11. Someone might want to tell the fool who put this in place that it is a HIPPA violation and that they have just opened the county to a MASSIVE CLASS ACTION law suit. You cannot legally require citizens to publicly display personal health information. Your hysteria does not override US law.

  12. Any mandate or law that is unconstitutional is no law at all and as a representative of the people it will not be followed the people making these insane commentswill be ignored until they can’t be ignored anymore and then they’ll be removed

  13. Take your wrist bands and tattoos and shove them up your commie asses.
    Every citizen in Montana should march on your capitol building.
    YOU ARE NAZIS hiding as “representatives”.

    I WILL NOT COMPLY.

    PS.. The CONSTITUTION is my WRITTEN PERMISSION SLIP to go where I please.

    Dismissed,
    E-7 Ret.

  14. Wow! I thought Montana was a rugged state of real men. Apparently not! It must be populated by snowflakes and girly men!

  15. Hey, instead of pink armbands, why not little triangle or six-sided stars one could simply sew onto their clothing? That would make it so much more convenient and sanitary. I realize that at first glance they wouldn’t be as obvious but it might give local shopkeepers more time to sell their goods before the Stasi escort visitors to specified areas or “camps” … for their own good, mind you.

  16. Seems I recall another case where the people were force to wear armbands. Oh, wait! It was during World War II, the Nazi’s forced the Jews to wear identifying armbands! Hmmmm, as they say, history repeats itself! Government officials need to remember that they serve, they don’t rule!! Your employment can be terminated.

  17. Interesting, that Valley County “elected officials” would require personal identification methods that are not being used in such bastions of progressive diversity as Seattle and San Francisco, and have been used before as the picture shows. Maybe the Citizens of Valley County should buy some extra feather pillows in case an early winter happens this year.

  18. Why not swastika armbands?
    If I were asked which state in the Union would go over the top in their national socialist wet dream, I would have picked CA or NY before MO.
    Are the mosques left alone there too?

  19. All parties involved need to be hunted down and executed…. Maybe the rest will understand just which country this is….

  20. Valley County apparently could not immediately get their hands on yellow Star of David patches, so with a nod to the gay community they decided to use pink armbands instead?
