Grant County to move to “Moderate Risk”

In a nutshell, Moderate Risk calls for an 11 p.m. closing time at eating and drinking establishments along with an adjusted seating capacity; faith institutions and funeral homes can operate at 50% occupancy; and employers are encouraged to recommend remote work for office employees if they’re able.
