City of Victor begins a staged reopening

TETON VALLEY, Ida. – The City of Victor has made updates to its coronavirus mitigation measures, pivoting with Stage 2 of the State of Idaho ‘Rebounds Plan.’

Victor will begin opening on a limited basis. That includes city parks and playground equipment, as well as public buildings like City Hall.

During a press conference held Thursday, Governor Little announced that Stage 2 of the State of Idaho Rebounds Plan will commence on May 16. The Governor also announced that the requirement for a 14-day self-quarantine for those entering Idaho from out of state communities with no or low level COVID-19 spread will be lifted under of Stage 2. This provision was originally scheduled to expire under Stage 4 of the Plan, tentatively May 30.

The City of Victor responded by taking several steps to align with the advancement of the State’s Plan including preparing to reopen City Hall on a limited basis, reopening park equipment such as jungle gyms and swing sets, and holding a special City Council meeting at 9:30 a.m. on May 18 to lift the remaining emergency ordinances in place regarding a 14-day self-quarantine for outside of region non-essential travel and limitations on hotels and short-term rentals.

City authorities cautioned, however, that precautions should still be taken. For instance, citizens are encouraged to continue to practice thorough and frequent handwashing, stay home when sick, wear face masks in public, continue physical distancing while in groups of no more than 10 people, and minimize non-essential travel.

City Hall

Citizens are encouraged to continue to use online and remote options to make online payments and connect with staff who are available to assist:

City parks

City park equipment, such as jungle gyms and swing sets, will be open to the public beginning May 16 when Stage 2 of the State of Idaho Rebounds Plan begins. Park visitors should abide by the guidelines set forth in Stage 2 of the plan including that vulnerable persons should continue to self-quarantine, gatherings of 10 or fewer people may occur where physical distancing can occur, and non-essential travel should be minimized.
