On Friday, April 16, Mesa County will drop all county restrictions related to COVID-19, per approval by the county commissioners. State and federal regulations are still in play. Individual businesses, particularly national chains, may also have additional restrictions.

…The county’s “Free to Choose” resolution says that anyone, individual or business, is free to follow whatever health guidelines they want, but also encourages county residents to respect whatever choice people or companies choose to impose.
