BLAINE COUNTY, Idaho — In a meeting Thursday, Blaine County Commissioners agreed to allow the county's more restrictive measures preventing the spread of COVID-19 to expire Sunday at midnight.

The expiring restrictions were contained in Blaine County Ordinance 2020-02, which supplemented Governor Little's stay-at-home order.

Officials say Blaine County's restrictions will now be the same as those detailed in the state's newly amended stay-at-home order.

The county is also providing jobsite work standards in order to ensure proper health and safety practices are followed and communicated to workers in commercial and residential construction trades. If practices are not followed, county officials say more demanding health restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 could be revisited.
