South Central Public Health District is working closely with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and healthcare providers throughout the region. SCPHD encourages everyone to take precautions to avoid all respiratory diseases including keeping six feet between you and people you don't live with, wearing masks in public areas, sanitizing commonly touched surfaces frequently, and washing your hands regularly for at last 20 seconds.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Call your medical provider if you are concerned you might have been exposed, and have a cough/shortness of breath/difficulty breathing or at least two of these symptoms.
If you do not have a medical provider call 2-1-1 for assistance.

Blaine County has adopted a more stringent plan than the rest of the district to help prevent future cases instead of mitigating current cases. This plan is supported by SCPHD and the health district plays a role in the final assessment. The plan for Blaine County is based on the Harvard Global Health Insititute's Key Metrics for COVID Supression. See the final dashboard on Blaine County's website.
