Grant County remains in the blue zone of the state’s COVID metrics, but substantial differences in vaccination rates persist in the county compared to state numbers and also when comparing different ZIP codes within the county.

At Wednesday’s weekly COVID-19 community update, Commissioner Mark Bardsley said the county has reported a total of 8,031 COVID cases and 181 deaths since the pandemic started, with four new cases reported Tuesday night into Wednesday. The delta variant has been confirmed in Grant County, but Bardsley said an updated number of delta cases locally was not available.
