CdA Votes 'Yes' to Mask Mandate, Idaho Moving Back Reopening Phase


Masks will now be required in the city of Coeur d'Alene and the state of Idaho is returning to reopening Phase 3.

The CdA Council voted 'Yes' 4-2 on a citywide mask mandate. The mandate will be in place for the next 90 days.

On Monday, Idaho governor Brad Little state back in Phase Three after the state was previously in Phase Four. 

Governor Little says "I'm hopeful that the citizenry of Idaho will recognize the magnitude of this problem."

The move backwards means gatherings can no longer be larger than 50 people and large venues and nightclubs must close.
