Idaho reported 417 new confirmed coronavirus cases for Sunday and Monday, and 102 probable cases, for a two-day total of 519, as Ada and Kootenai counties continued to produce the most new positives.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare no longer updates its coronavirus website, coronavirus.idaho.gov, on Sundays, so Monday’s report will cover both days.

Ten deaths spread over six counties were added statewide because of COVID-19-related causes. Idaho’s fatality total is now 1,737 people.

In addition to the Ada deaths, Monday’s count included two people in Canyon County and one apiece in Bannock, Bingham, Power and Benewah counties.
