1. Good for Idaho

Hopefully the low population density for most of the state will work in favor of blunting the spread of Covid-19. I clicked through on the Idaho Statesman link. Only four comments, but none of them were of the "Why are we giving in to this Democrat hoax" variety. So that's good, too.

2. Temple Square told it's

followers that all Meetings on Sundays are canceled till further notice. That is the real reason Idaho as well as the rest of the Colonies are reporting fewer active cases.

3. Good!

The states shouldn't be reactive, they should be proactive.

5. Unfortunately, this is a VERY reactive move

Oregon and Washington have already been shut down, so the residents of Eastern WA and Eastern OR have been coming to Idaho.
