Tuesday night Central District Health’s board unanimously voted for a public health advisory that covers all four of its counties and makes “strong recommendations” to wear face masks, work from home, and avoid all social gatherings.
The board agreed to pass the new advisory as COVID-19 numbers continue to rise in Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley County.
The Idaho Press reports the advisory recommends a number of things, including:
Businesses changing to delivery/curbside services
Places of worship having services virtually
Bars, restaurants, breweries/taprooms/wineries/distilleries moving to takeout/carryout only and closing at 10 p.m.
Working from home and
Minimizing non-essential travel
The advisory will remain in effect until there is a sustained two-week decline in cases in the health district and there is a two-week case rate of less than 30 per 100,000 population.
