After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said vaccinated people can safely go without masks this week, some health districts, school districts, and cities across the state are reevaluating their public health advisories and mandates. The status varies by location: Boise lifted its mask order on Friday, while Moscow’s remains in place. Be sure to check with your local officials. Also this week, 12-15 year olds are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. New cases remained low, with the seven-day rolling average case rate in nearly all of Idaho’s counties hitting less than 10 new cases per 100,000 people. Kootenai and Benewah counties had the highest case rates in the state this week. Ada County reported the state’s first known case of the India variant, bringing the total number of variants found in Idaho to 6. Statewide, test positivity remained roughly the same at 4.4 percent, as did hospitalizations and ICU admissions. As of Friday, 631,018 Idahoans had received at least one dose of the vaccine, with 552,997 fully vaccinated.
