Even as vaccinations for COVID-19 are happening, Idaho is still being hit hard by the pandemic. Since March Idaho has had 123,517 confirmed cases of the virus, while the death toll for our state is more than 1,500.
That means more than 1,500 hundred families are coping with the loss of a loved one. So to honor those who have died, a statewide memorial is being planned for Jan. 14 to remember them.
Joining Idaho Matters to talk more about this are event organizers with the group 97 Percent Nathaniel Hoffman, Mike Satz and retired pastor of Boise’s Vineyard Church Tri Robinson.
