Order Enforcement

The City of Boise is partnering with the business community to ensure our businesses can stay open safely. We are hopeful that this will help curb the spread of COVID-19.

Business Not In Compliance

If you are a patron of a business where staff/business is not complying with COVID-19 health orders, you can request the business be inspected online or by calling (208) 608-7040.


After a request is received, the City of Boise will review the request, and if determined necessary a code enforcement or Boise Police officer will visit and inspect the business. If the business is indeed in violation, their business license may be suspended. If a business has their license suspended multiple times, their business license may be revoked.

If you are a business, learn more about resources available to you here.
