HAILEY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The Hailey City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to pass a public health order strengthening mask requirements, limit group size and require 6-foot physical-distances between people within businesses.

The order was prompted by the number of rising COVID-19 cases rising in the area that “threatens to affect the capacity of medical facilities in southern Idaho to treat patients,” a statement said.

In public places, face masks or face shields are required to enter public places.

  • A 6-foot distance must be maintained from other persons at all times after entering.
  • Hand washing and/or sanitizing must be used upon entering. All businesses are required to post signage at each entrance in English and Spanish.
  • Indoor group sizes may not exceed 10 people, with exceptions.
  • Outdoor group sizes may not exceed 50 people, with exceptions.
  • Businesses are prohibited from serving customers who do not comply with face-coverings and distancing regulations, with penalties resulting in business closure when businesses are noncompliant.
