Sheriff's office closed for Covid

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office in Ephrata will be closed as staff tested positive for Covid.

The closure is in effect as of Dec. 8 until further notice, GCSO said in a notice Monday evening.

“This temporary closure is due to four members of Corrections Division who have tested positive for COVID-19,” GCSO said. “Close contacts of any of these four people have been notified. There are no reported cases with any inmates.”

Front office support staff will be working remotely, and the public will still be able to reach the administrative office staff at 509-754-2011.

The office closure does not impact the Sheriff’s Office’s response to emergency or non-emergency calls for service, the notice said.

Concealed pistol license renewals are still available online; new CPLs continue to remain unavailable.
