On the heels of Eastern Idaho Public Health passing mandatory mask order for Teton County, Idaho on Thursday, Grand Targhee Report will make the same request of their visitors and employees as Teton County, Wyoming continues to debate the merits of a mask ordinance.
“We are committed to limiting the spread of COVID-19 and providing a healthy environment where we can continue to recreate and enjoy the outdoors,” read Targhee’s website Friday afternoon. “In the interest of keeping our guests, employees, and community safe, ALL visitors to Grand Targhee Resort will be required to wear a face covering.”
Currently, face coverings are highly recommended, and beginning Wednesday, July 22, face coverings will be required, the press release continued.
