IDAHO MOVES BACK TO STAGE 2

2980

What does this mean for you?

Responding to the rising amount of coronavirus cases throughout the State of Idaho and the increasing stress on our healthcare system as a result of spread in our communities, Idaho Governor Brad Little is moving the state back to Stage 2 of its Idaho Rebounds reopening plan with some modifications

Some highlights:

  • Gatherings of more than 10 people, indoor or outdoor, are prohibited. This does not pertain to political and religious expression. 
  • At-risk Idahoans should self-isolate. 
  • All Idahoans are encouraged to telework whenever possible and feasible. 
  • Masks continue to be required at long-term care facilities. 
  • Bars, nightclubs, and restaurants continue to operate, but customers must remain seated. 
  • Businesses and churches will remain open. However, all individuals and businesses should continue following recommended protocols to minimize transmission, including wearing masks when around people not in your household. 

At the Governor's press conference held on Friday, November 13, 2020, Little said, "our hospitals and other healthcare providers are telling us too many healthcare workers across Idaho are out sick with COVID and they are contracting it within the community, and doctors and nurses who are healthy are overworked and burnt out.” 

To help preserve and elevate healthcare capacity, Little announced Friday that he will also sign an executive order to mobilize members of the Idaho National Guard to help medical facilities deal with the virus. 

Little noted that keeping youth in schools for in-person instruction is a priority and that most transmission is happening in small group settings with friends and loved ones where people tend to let their guard down with physical distancing and masks. He further explained that this all comes down to personal responsibility and that face masks can help slow the spread. "Masks not only prevent you from spraying droplets on others, but it prevents you from breathing in the droplets from others and catching the disease," Little said.
