COVID-19 case rates continue to improve statewide, according to IDHW Director Dave Jeppesen. The current seven-day moving average per 100,000 remains below 10 and the statewide testing positivity rate remains below the target of 5%.

Hospitalizations and intensive care admission rates remain stable, but Jeppesen said the rates are still higher than he would like to see. However, public health administrator Elke Shaw-Tulloch said COVID-19 related hospitalizations have decreased by about 83% since January, with the most significant decrease being among patients aged 65 and older. 

Hospitalizations among those 18 and younger have also decreased by 42% statewide. Throughout the state, about 5% of long-term care facilities are reporting cases of COVID-19.

As of last week, more than 600,000 Idahoans are fully vaccinated, which Jeppesen acknowledged as a major milestone in the pandemic recovery.

The vaccination milestone comes as the number of new COVID-19 cases among children continues to decrease.
