BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Gov. Brad Little’s efforts to flatten the curve and slow the rate of infection and spread of the coronavirus after it made a rapid entry into the state last month have succeeded.
But with infections slowing, the Republican governor is facing growing unrest within his own party.
Groups are chaffing at his stay-at-home order and the closure of non-essential businesses despite the risk of a second wave of infections. Calls to disobey have increased along with a smattering of defiant actions across the state.
Idaho has 1,802 virus cases and 54 deaths, according to a tally on Wednesday by Johns Hopkins University.
