BOISE, Idaho — Governor Brad Little commented Tuesday on Idaho's progress to stage three of his Rebound Idaho plan. The governor took questions during his weekly AARP phone conference and among the biggest concerns were voting safety and whether the state is reopening too quickly.

Idaho is one of about 22 states in the county that has seen a rise in COVID-19 cases since reopening.

"What we hope and pray for is that there is some level of immunity that lasts, so that we can get over the incredible negative consequences of this as we go on," said Gov. Little.

Little will hold a news conference on Thursday to address whether COVID-19 cases have stayed low enough to allow the state to move into stage four of the plan.
