MCCALL, Idaho — The McCall City Council voted this week to approve and implement an advisory order that hopes to minimize and mitigate the effects of COVID-19. The advisory supports the original Central District Health (CDH) Advisory dated November 17, 2020, and specifically urges all employees, employers, customers, patrons, residents, and visitors in the City of McCall to comply when possible with the seven-section order.
The advisory’s seven-section order urges all employees, employers, customers, patrons, residents, and visitors in the City of McCall to comply with the following guidance: abide by the mask order; work from home if feasible, minimize non-essential travel, suspend visits to congregate living facilities, avoid social gatherings with others who do not live in your immediate household, if 65 years of age or older or those with health conditions to avoid contact with anyone outside their household; special recommended guidance for businesses, places of worship, non-school sports, bars, and gyms.
In addition to the CDH Health Advisory for Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley Counties, this advisory order further supports the August 11, 2020, face-covering public health order currently in effect for Valley County and the Stage 2 order put in place by Governor Little and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare on November 13, 2020.
Recently, local hospital personnel and CDH staff reported to the Mayor and City Council they are seeing an increase of positive tests, and as tourist destinations, McCall and Valley County have the potential to add to the current level of community spread. In passing this order, the McCall City Council signifies the importance to comply with all the steps outlined in the advisory to protect the community and its visitors.
