McCall City Council lifts mask mandate due to metrics met but encourages the public to follow CDH recommendations.

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 


McCall, Idaho
May 7th, 2021
        
During a special McCall City Council meeting on May 6th, 2021, councilors lifted the mask mandate that was in effect inside McCall City limits. The order was originally expected to expire on May 26th, but during the April 22nd meeting, leaders approved a series of four metrics to monitor as influencers on their decision to require masks in McCall. 

As of May 6th, three of the four metrics had been met. The meeting hosted guests Dr. Greg Irvine of St. Luke’s McCall and Gina Pannell of Central District Health. They spoke on the COVID variants existing in our Idaho region, confirmed metrics, and advised the council to continue to monitor these metrics thoughtfully and consider restoring the mask requirement should things go in the wrong direction.   

What does this mean for individuals? 
Mask are no longer required inside McCall city limits. However, leaders encourage all individuals to follow the Central District Health Advisory guidelines that do still promote face coverings. 

What does this mean for businesses? 
All McCall businesses will now have the option to continue requiring masks as it fits their service model. City of McCall still encourages the business community to follow CDC Guidelines, CDH Advisories, and State Rebound Stages as appropriate.
