Editor's notes: The State of Idaho's COVID-19 public health disaster declaration ended Friday, April 15. After this date, KTVB will no longer post daily case counts. Also, the video posted above is the Idaho Dept. of Health and Welfare's March 15, 2022, COVID-19 briefing -- the most recent briefing from state health officials.

Two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, COVID-19 cases are dropping again, following a spike with record-high infection numbers linked to the Omicron variant.

In the fall of 2021, Idaho health officials attributed the fourth wave of the virus to low vaccination rates and the Delta COVID-19 variant, which became the dominant variant in Idaho. As 2022 began, the Omicron variant surged, and the statewide COVID-19 PCR test positivity rate climbed to nearly 40%. Now, in mid-March, the positivity rate has dropped below 5%, a level state health officials regard as an indicator of diminishing COVID-19 spread. The positivity for the week that ended March 12 dropped to 2.5%, the lowest since Idaho's first case was confirmed in March 2020.

KTVB has closely tracked a variety of data to follow statewide patterns of new COVID-19 case counts, deaths, vaccines administered and more. Keep scrolling to see those interactive graphs displaying Idaho's declining COVID-19 case trend.
