The Grants Pass Chamber of Commerce says these businesses are at the point where they would go under, unless they got back to business.
The chamber’s president and CEO says its working with the re-opened stores to make sure they’re operating safely.
“They’re sanitizing, they’re making sure to do the 6 foot distancing and following the guidelines the governor has given. I know she doesn’t have the finalized ones out yet, but they are following what they’ve received so far,” said CEO Josie Molloy.
Molloy says Josephine County is ready to open and waiting for the green light from the governor to start phase one.
