After declaring a State of Emergency Idaho Code section 46-1011, and for the duration of such state of emergency, the Mayor may issue Advisory, Social Distancing and Isolation orders, as deemed appropriate by the Mayor, and in accordance with, recommendations issued by local, regional, statewide and/or nationwide public health authorities.
A. Advisory Order: Where a public health hazard is foreseeable, the Mayor may enact an advisory order, which order may provide information and recommended guidelines for preventing, detecting, and/or mitigating the onset or spread of a public health hazard.
B. Social Distancing Order: Where a public health hazard is imminent, the Mayor may summarily enact a social distancing order. A social distancing order shall include an effective date and an anticipated expiration date, no later than thirty (30) days following enactment, which may be extended with the approval of the Star City Council. A Social Distancing Order shall apply within Star City Limits, and within unincorporated areas five (5) miles outside of Star City limits.
C. Isolation Order: Where a health hazard is present, and poses a clear danger to the public health, the Mayor may summarily enact an isolation order. An isolation order shall include an effective date and an anticipated expiration date, no later than thirty (30) days following enactment, which may be extended with the approval of City Council. An isolation order shall be effective only when and for so long as the public health hazard is present, and when no less restrictive alternative exists. Any person shall be entitled to appeal an isolation order, or to request a modification of any provision of such order by filing a written appeal with the City Clerk. Such appeal shall be heard by City Council at their next meeting, or, if no meeting is scheduled during the term of the isolation order, the Fire Chief shall review such appeal and issue a written decision. The Fire Chief's decision shall be final. (Ord. 306, 3-25-2020)
