More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, COVID-19 cases are once again increasing after steadily decreasing for weeks, with hospitals filling up and statewide ICU units at the highest capacity since the start of the pandemic. 

State health officials attribute the fourth wave of the virus to low vaccination rates and the Delta COVID-19 variant, which is now the dominant variant in Idaho.

Idaho's COVID-19 positivity rate on August 5 was the highest it has been since February (10.7%) as state and local health officials urge more Idahoans to get vaccinated.
