COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Pandemic Updates Involving Special Events
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, please carefully consider plans for a public gathering or event at this time. Carefully plan and follow CDC and Eastern Idaho Public Health guidelines for sanitation and safety to protect people at your event and prevent them from being exposed unnecessarily to illness.
Furthermore, due to an increase of cases in our county, Eastern Idaho Public Health has put out an order limiting the amount of event attendees based upon the size of the event venue. Each participant of your event must have 28 square feet of space. Masks are also mandatory for everyone if they are unable to remain at least 6 feet apart, including people at events.
Furthermore, the Governor has issued an order stating that events are limited to 10 people or less. This will remain in place until the order is removed. .
The State of Idaho has also released their Interim Guidance for Mass Gatherings.
Please be aware that due to constantly changing circumstances with the COVID-19 issue, the city may be required to temporarily limit or cancel public events or gatherings.
When guidelines are released, they will be posted on this page. Until then, please contact the Special Event Coordinator at the contact information on the right side of the page.
At this time, if you have already booked your special event and wish to cancel, the City of Idaho Falls is currently completely refunding the special event fees. Please contact the Special Event Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
- The event takes place in a publicly owned area, such as a public park or street, and has 100 or more attendees
