Following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and in light of increased community spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and low vaccination rates in Ada County, the City of Boise has reinstated a face covering requirement at all indoor city facilities.

This indoor mask requirement applies to all visitors and staff at city buildings including the James Castle House.  

This change applies to everyone regardless of their vaccination status.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community healthy.

We acknowledge that the James Castle House resides on the ancestral, cultural, traditional, and unceded territory of the Shoshone, Bannock, and Northern Paiute people.
