Despite a federal mandate expiring, Grant County will continue to offer up to two weeks of paid sick leave for employees confirmed to be infected with COVID-19, at least through the end of this month.

At Monday’s commissioners’ meeting, County Administrator Justin Saathoff noted the Families First Coronavirus Response Act’s provisions regarding employee sick and family leave expired Dec. 31. The act included a mandate for employers to offer up to two weeks of paid sick leave for those who test positive for COVID, and Grant County affirmed it would follow the act through the end of the year shortly after it was announced.
