Following social distancing rules and wearing face coverings, visitors hike through Texas in April.


Valley County is many Idahoans summer playground: from the fresh mountain air, to hiking and biking and sunny days on the lake, people come in droves to this area to get away and relax.

With COVID-19 still being a real issue, Valley County community leaders are trying to get the word out on how to stay safe while still having fun this summer.

One group that’s watching this are the medical professionals who take care of folks in Valley County. Joining Idaho Matters live today are Dr. Doug Irvine, the chair of the St. Luke’s McCall Community Board, and Dr. Greg Irvine, St. Luke’s McCall Chief of Staff. 

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
