Grant County one of three now eligible to apply to move forward

Three additional counties are now eligible to apply to move forward under Governor Inslee’s Safe Start plan, the Governor’s office announced Thursday.

Grant, Cowlitz and Pacific counties can now submit an application for variance under the plan. If approved, those counties could move forward to phase 2, which allows limited in-store retail, salon and gym services.  

So far, Governor Inslee has approved 10 counties to move forward. Those include: Asotin, Columbia, Garfield, Lincoln, Ferry, Pend Orielle, Skamania, Stevens, Wahkiakum, and Whitman counties.
