Southeastern Idaho Public Health has confirmed a case of COVID-19 in Bear Lake County. This brings the total to 187 cases in southeastern Idaho.
The patient is a female under the age of 18 from Bear Lake County. She is home recovering. The case is travel related.
Home recovering means that the patient is currently at home recovering; it does not imply that their symptoms are mild. These individuals, at the time they receive their test results, are not ill enough to be admitted to the hospital. Every case is different and severity of symptoms has varied. In addition, symptoms can change and become severe rapidly.
SIPH will continue to monitor the situation closely and is working with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, city and county leaders, schools, emergency management, healthcare providers, and our community at large to help prevent the spread of this virus.
