Because of the case surge in Montrose County, Walmart shut its doors in order to sanitize and clean.
This is not a county or city decision, but rather a decision made by Wal-mart based on Montrose County's case rates. The company evaluates COVID-19 data in the counties of each location, and when a threshold is reached, they try to get ahead of the curve by shutting down and cleaning.
While people can get COVID-19 via surface transmission, most transmission is airborne (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/more/science-and-research/surface-transmission.html), so it's unclear whether the closure will have the desired effect.
What are your thoughts on the closure?
