McCall's Economy Feels Positive (And Negative) Effects Of A Pandemic Boom

Don Day


At the beginning of the pandemic last year, resort towns in Idaho and other western states worried what would happen to their tourism-based economies. Would tourists still come and spend their money in these towns? Would businesses be able to survive? In McCall, Idaho the answer to these questions is becoming clearer.

Idaho Matters checks in with reporter Autum Robertson and Don Day of BoiseDev about the economic boom the McCall region has experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
