This Place Is Special

As we navigate these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever that we care about one another and the places we value…and this area holds a special place in many hearts. As we begin to travel farther from home in search of fresh mountain air, solitary hiking trails and sunny days on the lake, we ask that you come prepared and knowledgeable about the places you choose to recreate.

UNDERSTAND IDAHO’S REOPENING PLAN

We are currently in STAGE THREE of our state-wide “Idaho Rebounds” plan. The State rolled back to this stage on October 26, 2020 after a spike in statewide cases and decreased hospital capacity.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN STAGE THREE

  • Expect health and safety protocols to be in place at individual businesses and comply with these measures.
  • Social gatherings (public and private) of LESS than 50 people are allowed where physical distancing and precautionary measures can occur.
  • Non-essential travel can continue to locations that allow it and do not have ongoing transmission (adhere to Idaho and CDC guidelines regarding isolation following travel).
  • Restaurant dining rooms, indoor gyms, recreation facilities, salons, bars and movie theaters continue to be open with approved health plans and protocols – including limited capacity to maintain social distancing requirements.
  • Nightclubs can operate as a bar with seating only and large venues are closed.
  • Strict physical distancing of at least six feet, hand washing, staying home if you are sick, regular disinfection of surfaces and wearing a mask in public places is standard protocol.
