Custer County health officials said Thursday they are "strongly recommending" the county return to phase one of the governor's reopening plan for two weeks because of a recent spike in COVID-19 cases.

Moving back to phase one means reducing capacity in bars and restaurants back to 50 percent, reducing the size of a larger gathering, including athletic and community events and assemblies, and other restrictions.
