Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable: January 29, 2021

Office of the Governor
Gov. Brad Little received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine earlier this week.

There's a lot to get into this week on the Idaho Matters Friday Reporter Roundtable.

This week's topics: Idaho's low-performing vaccine rollout, a Republican lawmaker falsely claimed "the pandemic is over" and pushes for lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, why board members of one Idaho health district were offered early vaccines, and the largest layoff in Idaho since 2018. 

Our journalist panel today:

  • Rachel Cohen, Boise State Public Radio reporter
  • James Dawson, Boise State Public Radio reporter
  • Don Day, founder and editor of BoiseDev
  • Scott McIntosh, opinion editor of the Idaho Statesman
