COVID-19 Daily Report | Monday, November 23

With six of our counties in either the Critical Risk Level (Bonneville, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton) or High Risk Level (Fremont and Jefferson) and with the uptick in cases and hospitalizations since Halloween, we are obviously concerned about Thanksgiving and the spread of the virus during gatherings with family and friends. The bottom line is holiday celebrations with more people pose more risk than gatherings with fewer people. Smaller gatherings in people’s homes are spreading the virus in our community, RIGHT NOW, especially in situations where there is a level of trust and comfort between people which creates the belief that distancing and mask wearing does not need to happen. The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is with people who live with you. If you choose to be with other people, PLEASE maintain physical distance and if not able to, wear a mask. For more information on keeping the risk lower this holiday season, please go here: https://www.cdc.gov/…/2019-…/daily-life-coping/holidays.html.

We have 190 new cases of COVID-19 to report today. The cases are in the following counties: Bonneville (98), Custer (2), Fremont (10), Jefferson (16), Lemhi (3), Madison (44), and Teton (17). As of today, there are 62 residents from our health district hospitalized due to COVID-19 and an additional 8 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 that live outside our health district for a total of 70. Also, the death we reported on Saturday (a woman in her 90s from Bonneville County) was retracted today by IDHW.
