Which Idaho Cities Require Masks?
To mask or not to mask? Lately I feel like I'm stuck in a game show every time I'm about to get out of the car. I find myself having to make ask my self what city or county I'm in so that I can put my mask on or not. This past weekend I drove 1500 miles and cruised through 6 different states and I literally had to google the mask mandates for that specific city and state. I want to save you some time and aggravation by sharing the list of cities that require masks in Idaho compliments of ktvb.
