For Immediate Release
November 20, 2020
City of McCall along with local health and safety agencies collaborate to support Central District Health’s Advisory to avoid non-essential travel as the holiday season approaches.
The City of McCall, St. Luke’s McCall, Cascade Medical Center, McCall Police Department, and McCall Fire are sharing a message in support of their local health district’s recent advisory to stay home and stay healthy for the holidays. These agencies know it’s necessary now, more than ever, to preserve our community resources, health care and stop the spread of Coronavirus.
The collaboration is a continued effort to show our commitment to preventing the spread by following Central District Health’s most recent advisory as released on November 17th, 2020. Central District Health advises to “avoid non-essential travel” and to “avoid social gatherings, including among family members who do not live in your household.” During these unique times, we respectfully ask that you honor these guidelines and protect yourself and your family.
The West Central Mountains has limited health care services available at St. Luke’s McCall, Cascade Medical, and limited EMS transport services, emphasizing the need to be proactive in encouraging our neighbors in other areas of Idaho and our sister states to follow CDC guidelines and respect the advisory by our local health district.
Our organizations maintain hope and are encouraged by a vaccine on the horizon, but recognize we have a long road ahead. Stay the course, be resilient, and join together for a common goal to remain healthy. Please follow these guidelines so we can provide everyone, locals and visitors alike, with the same level of care in any emergency.
If you do happen to find yourself in our mountains, please protect yourselves, protect us and protect our mountain playground by wearing a mask, recreating responsibly, and learning more about our region before you arrive.
Things to know before you go:
• In McCall and all of Valley County masks are required by order of Central District Health.
• McCall is open to travelers, but mask-wearing is now required for all.
• Businesses may have protective protocols in place, such as special hours or curbside service.
