PRESS RELEASE - 1/7/22 (updated 1/11/22):
EASTERN IDAHO PUBLIC HEALTH (EIPH) SEEING UNPRECEDENTED COVID-19 CASE NUMBERS; EVERYONE URGED TO TAKE CAUTION

Starting the week of January 3, EIPH experienced its largest daily COVID-19 case count of the pandemic with 432 cases being reported on Thursday, 1/6/22. These unprecedented numbers are likely due to the highly transmissible Omicron variant that is now rapidly spreading across Idaho, the nation, and the world. Case numbers are likely much higher than officially reported due to people not getting tested for a variety of reasons including personal choice, lack of availability of rapid testing supplies, and the underreporting of positive results from at-home tests.
