Inspections Within Occupied Dwellings Resume

As of May 18, 2020, the City of Boise has resumed inspections within occupied dwellings. Please help ensure safety precautions are implemented for the protection of both citizens and city inspectors. Wearing proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) (masks, gloves, shoe covers), adhering to social distancing, removing people in advance from the direct areas needing inspections, cleaning/sanitizing job sites and ventilating areas or rooms (open windows) are all safety precautions to be implemented.

If anyone within the dwelling is or has been recently ill, been in contact with an ill person or traveled out of state or the country, please reschedule the inspection for a later date.

Please note, inspectors do have discretion in requesting that inspections be rescheduled if appropriate safety precautions are not being met at a site. Virtual inspections with photos, videos or video conferencing calls may also be an option when coordinated with and acceptable to the inspector. Thank you for your understanding in helping keep everyone safe.
