Idaho Weekend COVID-19 Update

Idaho recorded nearly 70 percent of all its confirmed coronavirus cases in the month of July.  That’s nearly 14 thousand new cases of COVID-19, with105 deaths. Multiple towns and counties have issued mask mandates, and Ada County reversed course to Phase 3 restrictions limiting gatherings and closing bars and nightclubs. But, as Troy Oppie reports, infection rates appear to be shrinking.



Troy Oppie is a reporter and local host of 'All Things Considered' for Boise State Public Radio News. He's also heard Saturday nights on Boise State Public Radio Music's Jazz Conversations.
