We’ll track Idaho’s confirmed cases of the coronavirus, which causes the COVID-19 disease, in this post. We’ll also update with the testing numbers around the state.

Idaho tests completed: 45,182*

Idaho confirmed cases: 2,566

Idaho probable cases: 252

Idaho confirmed deaths: 82

Stats: Through May 29, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare reports 240 hospitalizations, 96 admissions to the ICU and 307 health care workers who have been infected. The hospital and health care numbers are based on cases with completed investigations into contacts, not the full number of positives. About 5.7% of Idaho’s tests have been positive.

Note: The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has started estimating the number of patients who have recovered from coronavirus. That was 2,225 people through May 29.

(Data as of 5:45 p.m. Friday, May 29; the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare website updates statewide numbers by 5 p.m. each day; individual health districts can update their numbers at different intervals).

BEHIND OUR REPORTING

Why our case numbers might differ from the state's

The Idaho Statesman is tabulating confirmed coronavirus cases from Idaho’s seven health districts as they’re reported. The health districts report cases on their own schedules — some issue press releases, some simply update totals on their websites. And the reports happen at various times throughout the day.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, meanwhile, updates its statewide numbers once a day at about 5 p.m. Its numbers only include the cases the health districts have reported directly to the department. In some cases, health districts have reported cases publicly but not to the department by the daily deadline.

Eastern Idaho Public Health announced the evening of March 30 three new cases in Madison County and that community transmission has arrived there, joining Ada, Blaine, Canyon and Kootenai counties.

“As we have watched the progression of this pandemic across the nation and Idaho, we knew that at some point we would experience community transmission. This is where the governor’s stay-home order really comes into play to help us slow the spread. If you have not been taking the matter seriously, now is the time to start,” Geri Rackow, EIPH Director, said in the release. “Staying home at the first sign of even the mildest of symptoms is going to help the disease from being spread to others.”

CASE NO. 1: ADA COUNTY

The woman who was the first person in Idaho with a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus is a student at Idaho State University’s Meridian campus, the university announced.

The state announced the case March 13. The woman was described as an Ada County resident in her 50s.

The woman had returned from a conference in New York City, said Elke Shaw-Tulloch, administrator of public health for the Department of Health and Welfare. Three other attendees at that conference have tested positive for the coronavirus, which causes the COVID-19 disease.

Idaho State shut down the Meridian campus March 13 for cleaning before the positive test result was known. The samples were taken from the woman late March 12, according to state health officials, and tested March 13.

The campus is located at 1311 E. Central Drive, near the crossing of Locust Grove Road and Interstate 84.

The woman was last on campus March 10, Idaho State’s announcement said. It was signed by President Kevin Satterlee.

“All potentially impacted individuals who had contact with the student have already been notified and are being monitored,” Satterlee wrote. “Central District Health (CDH) is contacting those faculty, staff and students who had closest contact with the student to provide further guidance. If you are not contacted by CDH or our University Health Center, then there is no reason for you to have elevated concern. CDH has advised us that this is not an illness that is spread through brief, casual contact.”
