Proof of vaccination or proof of negative COVID-19 test required for all attendees Masks are required both indoors and outdoors if six feet of physical distance cannot be maintainedEvent organizers must provide masks for attendees and masks must be worn when not eating or drinkingCOVID-19 protocol ambassadors, staffed by the event, are required on siteEvent organizers must submit a plan to the city’s Special Events Team for approval Physical distancing measures in placeSanitation stations throughout event footprintEvent organizers must submit a traffic flow plan for approval to prevent COVID-19 spread and promote physical distancing
We are requiring these additional steps so that events can continue in the City of Boise.
It’s up to all of us to do what we can to protect ourselves and each other from COVID-19. Please get vaccinated if you can and wear a mask indoors, and outdoors when physical distancing cannot be maintained. These simple steps are proven to slow the spread of the virus. Together, we can keep our community safe, continue enjoying events and come out of this pandemic stronger.
