Government watchers and meeting aficionados, take note.

The Teton County Board of County Commissioners will go fully virtual until Nov. 30, when they are set to return to masked, in-person meetings in the County Administration Building at 200 S. Willow St.

The decision, which was made Thursday and went into place Monday, mirrors Teton County School District No. 1’s decision to move all school operations online until at least the last Monday in November.

Many other organizations and events in town have either closed or been cancelled as Teton County continues to set records for active COVID-19 infections. Health officials reported 216 active cases Monday afternoon, a daily record that beat the last record, which was set Friday when 175 active cases were reported.

Organizations that have closed include Astoria Hot Springs, Pearl Street Bagels’ Jackson location, the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum, and the Snow King Ice Rink and its hockey programs.

Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation’s Annual Turkey Trot has likewise been cancelled. It was originally scheduled for Nov. 21.

Other businesses are also changing up their operations.

The Vim exercise studio is scaling back on class numbers and occupancy and offering more live virtual classes. Miazga’s has likewise gone to takeout only and will provide online ordering in the coming days.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the closures around town — just those that have crossed News&Guide staffers’ (home office) desks.

If you have information on a closure or reopening that is not listed or has changed, please email editor@jhnews
