Governor Extends Stage 4 Reopening Plan by Two Weeks

Date: June 26, 2020

Failure to meet epidemiologic and healthcare criteria delays exiting Idaho Rebounds blueprint completely

Not so fast.

June 26 was to have been the last day for Stage 4 of the Idaho Rebounds plan, but spikes in coronavirus cases have now put a hold on that departure date for at least two more weeks.

According to a news release issued by Gov. Brad Little, “Idaho did not meet the epidemiologic and healthcare criteria to advance past Stage 4. The number of reported cases from June 10-25 trended upward instead of downward, the percent of positive tests from June 8-21 trended upward instead of downward, and the average percent positive for the prior 14-day period was greater than 5-percent at 5.12-percent. In addition, the number of healthcare workers reported with COVID-19 from June 10-23 trended upward, and the average number of healthcare workers reported having COVID-19 per day was greater than the standard of 2.

“The goal all along has been to ensure our hospitals aren’t overrun with people seriously ill from complications of this highly contagious respiratory disease. You can engage in the economy, safely go back to work, and safely receive care from your medical provider, but you must do so while practicing the proven measures to fight the spread of coronavirus.”
