Interactive map and timelines tracking coronavirus numbers and trends in Idaho

See the latest COVID-19 numbers as we track deaths as well as confirmed, probable and recovered coronavirus cases.

BOISE, Idaho — Editors note: The above video shows Idaho Gov. Brad Little announcing that Idaho has met the criteria to enter Stage 3 of reopening beginning on Saturday, May 30, allowing bars and movie theaters to open.  

As Idaho continues to reopen, we’re continuing to post live daily updates on the coronavirus situation in Idaho (see the latest real-time updates here). 

We’re also tracking the coronavirus case numbers and overall trends over time. 

Local Idaho health districts are releasing confirmed COVID-19 cases before they are submitted to the state and added to the official Idaho state total. We’re adding up the state total and showing the latest total count in our real-time updates live blog and below in this article. 

Some of those numbers local districts release might change if a positive case is determined to be an out of state resident – they will be added to another state’s total number of cases instead of Idaho. 

Scroll down to see our multiple graphs and timelines looking at the coronavirus case trends in Idaho, including a new graph showing a 14-day average that the State of Idaho is tracking to determine when the Gem State can move to the next reopening stage. Idaho is currently in the second phase of reopening.

You can also scroll down to see a timeline tracking how many cases the state had since Idaho’s first confirmed coronavirus case on March 13.

What else does the state look at to determine if Idaho is ready for each reopening phase?

State epidemiologist Dr. Christine Hahn explained how Idaho officials look at the number of COVID-19 cases and other numbers to track trends and determine reopening criteria.
