Face Masks Required in City of Boise Facilities

Masks are required for all visitors and staff at city buildings including Boise City Hall, City Hall West, the Boise Public Library, branch libraries, recreation facilities, water renewal facilities and city office buildings.  

This requirement applies to everyone regardless of their vaccination status. Exemptions apply to:

  • Children under the age of two (2).
  • Persons, including on-duty first responders, for whom wearing a face covering would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.

Reasonable accommodations, such as alternative service options when available, will be offered to persons with disabilities or medical and mental health conditions that prevent them from wearing a face mask. Persons who are deaf and hard of hearing, or communicating with a person who is deaf and hard of hearing, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication, may be accommodated with a transparent face mask, when available.

The City of Boise will continue to monitor the COVID-19 health crisis and consult with state and local health officials to quickly change or modify health orders as needed.
