Idaho Moves To Covid Phase 4

Idaho is moving to the next phase in its coronavirus reopening plan.

The Department of Health and Welfare says the state will move to Stage 4. That means there are no limitations on the size of gatherings, but participants are encouraged to continue to follow guidelines that encourage safety, including masks.

State officials encouraged anyone 16 and older who hasn’t yet been vaccinated to get shots. They say they expect the Centers for Disease Control later this week to recommend the Pfizer vaccine for 12-to-15-year-olds.
