Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) and the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce are teaming up in an effort, known as the Variance Protection Program, to encourage area businesses to implement safety measures that will help slow the spread of COVID 19 locally and allow Mesa County to move forward with reopening efforts needed to help the local economy recover.
