Local public health districts may be announcing cases of COVID-19 that are not reflected in the state’s numbers at coronavirus.idaho.gov.

The state case counts are based on records submitted to the state by the local public health districts through Idaho’s statewide disease tracking system. The state does not count cases of disease the local public health districts have not yet determined to be confirmed though investigations and submitted to the state. This is standard practice for all communicable diseases and done, in part, to ensure we count cases only among Idaho residents. The state of residence may not be immediately clear, for example, if someone who is a resident of another state becomes sick in Idaho and gets tested in Idaho.

This is a nationwide practice for assigning cases that has been agreed upon by all 50 states and U.S. territories since 2003 to ensure accurate state and national case counts. When a disease is diagnosed in an out of state resident, state-level epidemiologists contact the person’s state of residence to ensure they know about the case and collaborate on the investigation since it is possible that people in both states may have been exposed.

The local public health districts may be announcing cases of COVID-19 among people who were tested in their communities before they have been submitted to the state as a confirmed case out of an abundance of caution and to communicate that people in Idaho might have been exposed.

  1. And I would PERSONALLY like to extend my ‘thanks’ to the LOCAL ‘news’ media for following the national television networks’ lead and helping to spread/exacerbate the end-of-days panic. You all should be PROUD of yourselves. What’s in the marketing director’s bag-of-tricks NEXT? Maybe an HOURLY report on the INCREASE of Coronavirus cases in Idaho? Maybe with address locations for those who are diagnosed? How about people SUSPECTED of having been exposed to it? 🙁

  2. If it wasn’t for fake news and sensational news these fake news sites would go under; and rightfully so.
    But be happy, you will get your 1200 bucks in a few months, while the Kennedy Center for performing arts will get 24 MILLION, and there will be more info printed on LGBTQ things, and how great illegals are. I won’t benefit by any of it, but I don’t need it and feel for those who do. However, take that 24 million for the arts center (Pelosi wants her opera seat to remain) and distribute that out to the people.

    I’m just going to sit here watch movies on Netflix, Amazon, HBO and ignore the rest of the world.
