The City of Boise is walking back its COVID-19 protocols as case numbers stay down.
Beginning Monday, March 7, masks will not be required inside city facilities, including City Hall. Masks will still be required at the Boise Airport because of federal guidelines.
Gatherings size limitations will no longer be in effect along with physical distancing requirements. In addition, special events held within Boise, such as farmer’s markets and parades, will not be subject to previous COVID-19 protocols, which included proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests from attendees and organizers.
“I have always been committed to ensuring that each city employee and every resident who walks into our buildings or attends an event with their family can feel safe. COVID-19 numbers are down and staying down, which means I can make this change,” said Boise Mayor Lauren McLean.
In a news release, the City of Boise says it will continue to monitor COVID-19 cases and can modify health orders if needed.
