IDAHO — Idaho Department of Health and Welfare said they are investigating six possible reports of "breakthrough" cases in the state.
“No COVID-19 vaccine is 100% effective and we anticipated people would be reported to us who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19,” said Zachary Clark, IDHW Public Information Officer in an emailed statement.
On February 12, Oregon's health officials confirmed four breakthrough cases of COVID-19. According to Oregon health officials, the cases are when a person has tested positive for COVID-19 at least 14 days after getting their full vaccinations.
IDHW says the cases currently under investigation individuals experience mild to no symptoms at all and were tested after exposure to a confirmed case.
Health officials remind Idahoans to continue to social distance, wear face coverings and practice hand hygiene even if they have been fully immunized.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
