IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Idaho officials reported 316 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday as Idaho healthcare leaders plead for a statewide mask mandate, saying it’s the best way to slow a rapid increase in coronavirus cases.

This brings the total confirmed and probable cases reported since March to 11,718.

A tally by Johns Hopkins University shows the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state has nearly doubled in the past two weeks.
