A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR KLING
As we enter this coming week, celebrating Thanksgiving while struggling through COVID, it’s certainly a challenging season. Again today, I would like to strongly encourage our community to do your part in slowing the spread of COVID-19.  Our hospitals and health care workers are weary and growing very concerned. I’ve heard some say, they never would have thought they would have to choose who gets care. Over the past weeks we’ve tracked the moving average of Nampa cases. Since Oct. 1, we have moved from 21 to 68 as the 7-day moving average. Our goal is 10.

We must stop this upward trend as it is very challenging to care for those seriously impacted by the virus and we need our kids in school. Please distance, wear your mask and keep your hands washed or use sanitizer. Even in the midst of this challenging time, I’m so thankful I live in Idaho and this wonderful community of Nampa. As we celebrate Thanksgiving this next week, let’s think of the things we are thankful for and remember our help comes from the Lord.  Enjoy your holiday!
-Mayor Debbie Kling
