BOISE, Idaho — Editor's note: The above Verify looks at if the loss of smell or taste could be an early indication of COVID-19.
Local health districts are releasing confirmed COVID-19 cases before they are submitted to the state and added to the official Idaho state total. We're adding up the state total and showing the latest total count in our real-time updates live blog.
Some of those numbers local districts release might change if a positive case is determined to be an out of state resident - they will be added to another state's total number of cases instead of Idaho.
