In this Sept. 29, 2020 photo, President Donald Trump holds up his face mask during the first presidential debate in Ohio after mocking former vice president Joe Biden for wearing his mask.

Early Friday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that he and the First Lady had tested positive for COVID-19. On today's Reporter Roundtable, we first hear from Dr. David Pate, former CEO of St. Luke's Health System and a current member of Idaho's Coronavirus Taskforce and Dr. Sky Blue, an infectious disease doctor at Sawtooth Epidemiology about the president's coronavirus diagnosis. 

Then, we're joined by journalists Boise Weekly's Harrison Berry, BoiseDev's Margaret Carmel and KIVI's Mike Sharp to get us up to speed on the rest of this week's headlines. 

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.
