As the State of Idaho returns to a modified Stage 2, the City of Nampa has updated their continued service to the community to keep residents, customers and staff safe and healthy.

The City of Nampa will continue to assist customers remotely through online services, phone and email. We are requiring those visiting City of Nampa departments in person to please wear face coverings to protect our staff. For the health and safety of our staff and the entire community, the City asks customers to only visit our facilities if they are healthy; if customers are feeling sick (experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.), are awaiting COVID-19 test results or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or awaiting test results, please allow us to assist you remotely.
