A lot happened in Idaho news this week. Between our most recent spike in COVID-19 cases (including a report on Idaho schoolsfrom the White House) some new research on the health concerns facing Latina farmworkers in the Treasure Valley, thebeginning of debate season in the Gem State plus a new effort to keep people in their homes and stave off evictions in Canyon County, there's plenty to cover.

Joining the Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable today are Idaho Ed News's Kevin Richert, the Idaho Press's Rachel Spacek and Idaho Public Television's Melissa Davlin.

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.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
