IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - There are at least 1,101 confirmed COVID-19 cases in 32 of the 44 Idaho counties, according to numbers released Sunday from the local health districts and the state.

24 new cases were reported Sunday. 10 total deaths have been reported.

The state reports 10,995 people have been tested. 77 hospitalizations have been reported.

There is a new case in Teton County.

Teton County Case: Eastern Idaho Public Health is reporting a positive COVID-19 test result for a female in her 50s. This individual was not hospitalized and is recovering at home. She had recent travel to an area with wide-spread COVID-19 transmission.

Epidemiologists with EIPH are investigating this case. If other people are found to be exposed, health officials will contact them, provide them guidance, and monitor them closely for symptoms. Additional case-specific information about this individual is confidential and will not be released.

Gov. Brad Little has issued a statewide stay-at-home order as the coronavirus continues to spread.

Little announced the order on March 25 saying it would remain in effect for 21 days. The Governor and public health officials will assess whether to extend the order near the end of the 21-day period.

Some key points of the order are as follows:

  • Idaho Residents must work from home as much as possible while ensuring all essential services and businesses remain available.
  • Essential services and businesses that will remain open include grocery stores, health care facilities, all utilities, gas stations, financial institutions, residential and home based care, and other businesses essential to the safety and wellbeing of the residents of southeast Idaho. Restaurants will be able to provide delivery and carry out service.
  • All non-essential gatherings of any number must cease.
  • The isolation order ceases all non-essential travel.
  • The isolation does allow outdoor activity such as walking, hiking, running, and biking, but a safe distance of six feet must be kept between those who do not live in the same household.

  1. Again, folks: Please do the statistics. Roughly 10% of the people TESTED actually have/had the virus. Of THIS number, roughly 1% died.
    Yes, this IS a serious health crisis. Perhaps we DO have more to fear than just the “….fear itself.” but try to keep things in perspective. Panic benefits NO-ONE other than the plethora con-artists (seeking either your money OR, perhaps, your VOTE) and simply makes the jobs of those actually trying to get control of this thing harder. MOST of us can’t BE part of the solution. That doesn’t mean we have to be part of the problem. 😉
