LEWISTON, Idaho — The Lewiston City Council passed a mask mandate during a regular meeting on Thursday night.
The motion came more than 5 hours into the meeting and passed with a 4-3 vote. The move comes the same day that the Panhandle Health District passed a mask mandate for the state's five northern counties.
Idaho Governor Brad Little also moved the state back to modified Stage 2 in his Rebounds plan as coronavirus cases spike in the Gem state. Washington is also seeing record-high numbers of daily coronavirus cases.
According to KLEW News, the CBS-affiliate in Lewiston, public comments were heard for an hour-and-a-half before the vote.
