We emphasize the need for: 1) Face Coverings in Public, 2) Social Distancing and 3) Limit Social Gatherings/Settings
SIPH Stated-"We know face coverings and six feet of space works," Jeppesen [Director of Idaho Health and Welfare] said. "We know we are not going to stop transmission, but we know those measures slow down the transmission and don't risk our healthcare capacity. And as we look at the data where current cases are coming from, they're not coming from classrooms, they're not coming from people going to the grocery store. It's really in those social settings, it's sporting events and going to church, the community events."
- Strongly recommend and advise face coverings when in public
- Limit indoor gatherings to no more than 50 people
- Encourage vulnerable populations (elderly, individuals with underlying health conditions) to self-isolate
- Strongly encourage telework for those that are able
- Limiting travel/visitors to the region as well as travel within the State to areas with high rates of spread
- Congregate living facilities close to visitors and extra precautions implemented for employees
- Businesses implement delivery/curb-side services as much as possible
- Places of worship implement virtual services where possible
- Discontinue youth and adult sports/activities in which physical distancing is not possible
- Consider industry-specific measures/restrictions
- Schools should implement plans in response to these guidelines and those of Idaho Back to School Framework 2020
NOTE: Any or all of these strategies may be implemented
The SIPH Board of Health voted to increase the risk level in many of its counties October 29, 2020.
