All individuals visiting City Hall or the Blackfoot Public Library are required to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth at any time that it may not be possible to maintain at least six (6) feet of social distancing between themselves and others while in City Hall or in any other City office or workplace, whether that be indoor or outdoor.   It is the responsibility of the individual to provide their own face covering.

The City recognizes that wearing masks may not be possible in every situation or for some people.  In some situations, wearing a mask may exacerbate a physical or mental health condition, lead to a medical emergency, or introduce significant safety concerns.  Adaptations and alternatives should be considered whenever possible to increase the feasibility of wearing a mask or to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading if it is not possible to wear one.  Face coverings should not be worn by children under the age of 2, or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.  Additional specifics may be found at

City of Blackfoot leadership would like to thank everyone for their adherence to these restrictions, as we continue to strive to maintain the health of our community.  The restrictions will be evaluated periodically, and additional changes will be communicated via press release, the City’s web site and social media platforms.
