If you live in Eastern Idaho, don’t even think of going anywhere. Governor Brad Little issued a statewide stay-home order yesterday for all Idahoans. The stay-home order requires citizens to self-isolate at home if you can, not just if you are sick. This excludes healthcare, public safety and other essential workers as defined in the order. Those who are high-risk should avoid leaving home. However, people can leave home to obtain or provide essential services. Employers that do not provide essential services to the community must take all steps necessary for employees to work remotely from home. Grocery stores, medical facilities, and other essential businesses as defined in the order will remain open. Little also signed an extreme emergency declaration, which allows the state to more effectively increase health care capacity, take steps to reduce and slow coronavirus spread, and take rapid and decisive steps to improve the condition of Idahoans whose job and incomes are being harmed by the pandemic.
