LANCASTER (WKOW) -- The Grant County Fair is following the trend throughout Wisconsin and has decided to cancel for 2020.

In a statement Monday, Fairgrounds and Operations Director Amy Olson said they made the decision in consultation with the Grant County Health Department and after reviewing CDC and WEDC guidance.

"Difficulties in sanitizing, maintaining social distancing and still having an enjoyable experience were identified," Olson said in a news release. "We considered every option and had to make the decision based on what we know today, rather than what we think August will be like."
