Idaho moves into ‘Stage 3’ of coronavirus reopening plan

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. Brad little is moving the state into “Stage 3” of his coronavirus reopening plan, lessening restrictions on the size of group gatherings as the rate of COVID-19 infections continues to drop statewide.
Little made the announcement Tuesday morning, urging residents to “stay vigilant” in working to slow the spread of the virus.
“When we moved back to Stage 2 in November, case counts were spiking and hospitals were bracing for the worst,” Little said in a prepared statement. “Today, thanks to our collective good efforts, those case counts are much lower and trending downward. Idaho now has one of the lowest rates of spread in the nation.”
There were just under 434 new cases for every 100,000 Idaho residents in the past two weeks, ranking the state 35th in the country for new cases per capita, according to numbers from John Hopkins University. One in every 560 people in Idaho tested positive for COVID-19 in the past week.
Little noted that a new, more contagious strain of COVID-19 has been detected in the states surrounding Idaho and will likely be detected within the state soon. Idaho doesn’t have as much testing capability as many other states, and doesn’t routinely test for new COVID-19 variants.
