[ARCHIVED] City Council to Hold Special Meeting to Discuss Reimplementing Face Covering Ordinance | 8/20/21

City of Pocatello City Hall

The Pocatello City Council will hold a special meeting Tuesday, August 24 at 1 p.m. to discuss the possibility of reimplementing the City’s face covering ordinance.


When the ordinance was rescinded in late April, Councilmembers approved a motion to call a special meeting to consider re-implementing a face covering ordinance if active cases rise to 15 or more per 10,000 for 14 consecutive days or 30 or more per 10,000 for 3 consecutive days. The number of active cases has been above 15 since August 4 according to Southeastern Idaho Public Health (SIPH). SIPH does not report case data on weekends or holidays.

Limited in-person attendance is allowed, but due to COVID-19 guidelines, strict social distancing measures are in place and masks/face coverings are required.


Citizens can watch a stream of the proceedings at, or on Sparklight (formerly CableOne) cable channel 56. 


The face covering ordinance was previously in place from November 21, 2020 to April 28, 2021.
