Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable: November 13, 2020
COVID-19 continues to ravage the state of Idaho, with climbing hospitalizations and deaths. At the same time, local and state government officials are struggling to get folks to follow mask mandates where they do exist and encourage mask use where they are not required.
That's the big topic today on the Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable with Boise State Public Radio's Rachel Cohen, Rebecca Boone from the AP's Boise Bureau, Idaho Statesman opinion editor Scott McIntosh and BoiseDev's Margaret Carmel.
NOTE: After the live recording of this show Gov. Brad Little announced a rollback to a modified stage two of his reopening plan that would limit gatherings to no more than 10 people. But Little declined to create mandate that would require masks be worn statewide despite the request from doctors. For more on his announcement, click here.
