McCall City Council passes order requiring masks

 

Here is something you need to know if you are planning a weekend trip to McCall.

McCall City Council passed an order Wednesday requiring masks be worn in public starting at midnight.

During the meeting, McCall’s chief of police suggested adding a $100 fine so his officers could first educate and then enforce if necessary.

Things to know before you go:

  • Masks are required in all indoor facilities in McCall.
  • You may receive a fine of $100 if you do not comply.
  • McCall is open to travelers, but mask wearing is now required for all.
  • Payette Lake is open as usual for boating, swimming and fishing, etc.
  • Businesses may have protective protocols in place, such as mask-wearing or curbside service.
  • No alcohol is permitted within Lake front parks during the holiday weekend.

It appears a case of community transmission in Valley county, combined with rising case numbers, sparked the city council’s action.

The Fourth of July is usually a big weekend for the town.

Dr. Gregory Irvine, Chief of staff at St. Luke’s McCall Hospital answered questions from the council such as mask safety, its ability to flatten the curve and stop the spread of Coronavirus and how masks will allow businesses to stay open.

There is no custom code to display.
