This year, the Montana winter has been particularly harsh with temperatures plunging below zero throughout the month of January.  For this reason, heat bills may be higher and further out of reach for people on fixed and low incomes.  There is help available for income-eligible people who may be higher and further out of reach for people on fixed and low incomes.  There is help available for income-eligible people who may not be able to afford to heat their homes.  Action Inc. (formerly the Human Resources Council) is still accepting applications for heat assistance through the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP), which serves up to 2,500 households per year.  It is important for people to apply as soon as possible to avoid a potential shutoff from their utility provider.  People in need should contact Action Inc. at 406-533-6855 or toll free at 800-382-1325 or stop by Action Inc. headquarters at 25 West Silver St. in Butte.  Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Action Inc. serves Beaverhead, Deer Lodge, Granite, Madison, Powell and Silver Bow Counties.

Visitor restrictions are in effect immediately for visitors at St. James Healthcare.  The restrictions are due to the presence of influenza viruses in the community and the surrounding areas.  No visitors under the age of 18 are allowed, and visitors who have symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, including cough or fever, also will be restricted from visiting patients.
During the temporary visitor restriction, families and friends are encouraged to send a card or to telephone the patient rather than coming to the hospital to visit.  We will advise the public when the visitor restriction is no longer in effect.
Influenza is spread from person to person through direct contact with respiratory droplets, through contact with surfaces contaminated with droplets, or through small particles suspended in the air.  Even people with a mild case of influenza can transmit the infection to others.
If you do not feel well, have a fever, or have a cough, runny nose, or sore throat, please do not visit patients until you feel better.  If you are over 18 years old and must visit patients while you are ill, you will be asked to wear a mask and to wash your hands often to help prevent the spread of your illness.
The most important thing you can do to protect yourself and others from influenza is to practice good hand hygiene.  Throughout the hospital, you will find Hand Sanitizer stations that include masks, tissues and hand sanitizer.  When you do visit the hospital, be sure to sanitize your hands before and after your visit.
