The novel Coronavirus began shortly after the start of the new year and has caused disruptions in ordinary business functions and economic injury in Eagle and throughout the state. The event led to a State Disaster Declaration signed by Governor Brad Little on March 13th, 2020.

On March 25th, 2020, Governor Little issued a Stay-Home Order and signed an extreme emergency declaration. The stay-home order is effective immediately and in place for 21 days. All people may leave their residences only for essential activities, essential governmental functions, or to operate essential businesses.  For more information on the statewide Stay-Home order, please refer to the Statewide Stay-Home Order FAQ document.

The City of Eagle, in conjunction with Governor Little’s office, Idaho Department of Commerce, the Small Business Administration, the Small Business Development Center, Idaho Department of Labor, and other State and Federal agencies, is working to provide resources and information to Eagle businesses as they become available.

On March 26, 2020, the City of Eagle is waived regulations on temporary signage for 30 days, due to the State of Idaho's Stay at Home Order. The Stay at Home Order forces non-essential businesses to close. Restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. may only offer takeout, delivery, or drive-through service. In light of this order, Eagle Businesses are allowed to post temporary signage to communicate a closure or modification of operations, hours, or services. The stay at home order will end on April 15, 2020, unless extended by the Governor. If the stay at home order is extended, the City will extend the temporary sign waiver as necessary. No temporary sign shall block ADA accessible sidewalk requirements or violate the sight visibility triangle of any intersection as determined by ACHD.
