Boise Requires Proof of Covid-19 Vaccine for Certain City Events

By • September 17, 2021

Covid-19 vaccine passports are a continuing debate in the United States and here in Idaho.

To date, the state of Idaho has not done a vaccine mandate. No city in Idaho has done any vaccine mandate until this week.

Boise Mayor Lauren McLean announced that the city of Boise would require proof of Covid-19 vaccination for events that require a city permit and have more than 250 people.

McLean made the announcement shortly after President Joe Biden visited the Gem State.

Here is what McLean’s office put out in a statement on the city’s website:

From Mayor Lauren McLean

Coronavirus cases are surging across Boise and the Treasure Valley. Our hospitals, urgent care facilities and emergency rooms are once again overwhelmed and the City of Boise is taking additional steps to protect our community.

The city’s COVID-19 event policy is being updated following calls from the community for increased health and safety protocols for both indoor and outdoor special events.

Effective Friday, September 17, the following requirements are being implemented for events permitted by the City of Boise and/or being held at city-owned facilities:

For events under 250 people

  • Masks are required both indoors and outdoors if six feet of physical distance cannot be maintained
  • Event organizers must provide masks for attendees and masks must be worn when not eating or drinking
  • COVID-19 protocol ambassadors are required on site
  • Event organizers must submit a plan through the city’s special events process for approval

For events larger than 250 people

  • 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 maintained
    • Event organizers must provide masks for attendees and masks must be worn when not eating or drinking
  • COVID-19 protocol ambassadors, staffed by the event, are required on site
  • Event organizers must submit a plan to the city’s Special Events Team for approval
  • Physical distancing measures in place
  • Sanitation stations throughout event footprint
  • Event organizers must submit a traffic flow plan for approval to prevent COVID-19 spread and promote physical distancingWe 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.

Idaho Dispatch reached out to Senate Pro-Tem Chuck Winder (R-Boise) and Rep. Cody Galloway (R-Boise) to get their response to McClean’s mandate. Neither legislator has responded at this time.

What do you think of the Boise mandate?

  1. I’ll be avoiding Boise at all costs. If Madame McClean insists on acting like this is NYC, her city is going to lose a lot of the rest of the valleys patronage. There is no event in Boise that I’m willing to take an experimental jab for.

    1. It amazes me how so many capital cities in so many states are run by libs in so many areas. Must be something in the water.

      1. Ms O’Connor,
        Not so much the water but the preponderance of democrat/socialist inhabitants that occupy places of abode in the city limits.
        People of the left choose to locate in large metropolitan areas because of the activity and perceived benefits derived from residing in them.
        Because so many do, it brings a warmth to their sheepish souls as they surround themselves with others of like mentality.

  2. Boise has no right to mandate vaccines to exercise our constitutional right to assemble.

    In Italy, they passed a law mandating all private and public sector workers be vaccinated by Oct 15, or they cannot work or be paid. I hope everyone understands that the establishment is working toward the same goal here, they are just doing it incrementally through corporations, businesses and local and state governments.

    Everyone needs to get in the fight and hold the line! Say no, hell no!

  3. There was never any intent on returning to “normal”. Everything seems to have been carefully orchestrated to bring about a “new normal”. Most people don’t even realize how applicable the story of the frog in the boiling pot is at this time. How convenient Biden’s little stop-by visit was just prior to this announcement. I’m sure he gave his groupie McLean words of encouragement in carrying out these Nazi orders. During the first six years of Hitler’s dictatorship, government at every level—Reich, state and municipal—adopted hundreds of laws, decrees, directives, guidelines, and regulations that increasingly restricted the civil and human rights of the Jews in Germany. Do you get it??? It didn’t happen overnight! And here we are!!! Wake the F***K up!!!

  4. The Idaho legislature is a spineless, bought and paid for institution. Little is a piece of . Idaho is circling the drain because of these rinos and the Boise/ treasure valley commies. North idaho needs to separate from them permanently.

    1. And Kootenai county has a commission to “study” alternate form of government, among which would be “Should any of the other county officials, each now elected (Assessor, Clerk, Coroner, Prosecutor, Sheriff, or Treasurer) be consolidated or changed to hired positions (each office to be considered individually)?” Do we really want our sheriff to be appointed and become beholden to the one doing the “appointing”?
      In case anyone is not up to speed on this crock of bull, go to:

      I don’t think whoever wrote the page name didn’t think that the last word was really a Freudian slip. Oops.

    2. Think again dude. This place is packed with freedom fighters. Do what you need to do to pass the word on a new Governor that will overrule Worthless Mayors and we wouldn’t have this. Like Ed or Janice !

    1. Where’s the recall ? California can get 2 Mil dog but we can’t get 25K ?? Let’s get this Going (NOW) before she does too much damage.

  5. I am so glad I moved out of Boise although I rent my property. So far Boise is Communism central of Idaho but that can change if Idahoans do not challenge these kinds of mandates put forth by the Globalist twits that got elected,…….. by we the people. McClean is the worst major ever but at least her true colors are showing.

    1. During the campaign she fooled the people of Boise into believing she is a moderate, and it worked. Sneaky little gal.

  6. Don’t comply or give the city of Boise your business the Mayor is a COMMIE remember Nazi Germany? If people continue to obey the COMMIES will continue take our Freedoms and civil rights!

  7. Princess Lauren is kissing Biden’s rump. She looked like a dizzy school girl going on her first date when she met him. The yearning look on her face says it all.

  8. No one addresses the elephants in the room…
    Why is the Joint Chief of Staff (Miley) who committed treason by agreeing to give the CCP advanced warning of our military activity still in this position of power and why was Fauci working with and funding Bio-weapon research with the CCP that just happened to get released just in time to derail our election? Hmmmm. Anyone else putting the pieces of this obvious puzzle together yet?

    1. Yes, all these players need to be tried for treason for crimes against humanity & violations of human rights. In Plague of Corruption by Judy Mikovits she presents the criminal truth about Fauci & the suppression of her research & violation of her rights. The darkne$$ in gov is much bigger than most could bear to know. The synthetic man-made spike protein was injected as a bioweapon in the form of a ‘computer code’ to get the human body to manufacture it & spread it, compromising the intelligence of the body & the health of ALL. This corruption includes political & judicial & religious agencies. Energy oriented to the negative is feeding the evil that wor$hips sickness & death & seeks the enslavement of humanity. Bigger than ‘china vs usa’ We must stand for honesty & truth, live our freedom, realize our power to create a new reality. Masks & injections are a satanic agenda to test our allegiance. Those who believe lies & comply are entangled energetically with the liars. Being compassionate helps us keep our humanity. Feel your energy connected to all of us who stand for Integrity & Freedom, we are united & we are many.

  9. Who is running to take Boise mayor out ?? And when is voting ??
    Another thing. Didn’t Little pass a law banning vax passport in idaho ? If so, wheres he at ?

    Boise mayor Recall anyone ?

  10. I will stay clear of Bosie until this communist is gone. However long that takes. She is on a power trip. I can spend my money somewhere else. Hopefully people will wake up and get her out.

  11. We have discovered sooo many places to go in downtown Meridian, Nampa and Caldwell. Our area has some great places outside of Boise. No need to go there anymore. For those of us that can’t vote in a Boise election we are speaking with our feet.

  12. I just loooove how the mayor waited until AFTER the Boise PrideFest was over on the 12th before mandating on the 17th. However, the lefty cultured TreeFort will not escape the mandate, unless of course Boise City lets them skate by with minimal measures taken. Let’s see.

  13. So does that mean you need a VAX Passport to go to the Farmer’s Market? WOW! How about the Mall or Airport? What if you’re forced to have to go to City hall or the courthouse to pay a fine or file a building permit or lookup a property record??? OH! And how about voting stations?

    So having to show ID at a voting place is racest, but having to show one that you got VAXED is not?
