How we track COVID-19 cases:

As of May 17, 2021, KTVB reports the daily case numbers listed by the state on its website, www.coronavirus.idaho.gov.

Prior to May 17, 2021, KTVB calculated COVID-19 case numbers using the state's data, and numbers reported by the seven health districts in Idaho in order to maintain the latest up-to-date statistics. 

By May of 2021, the daily cases reported in Idaho dropped significantly compared the height of the pandemic, and discrepancies between the state and the various health districts have diminished significantly.

The state updates the number of total cases every day around 5 p.m.

Terminology:

  • "Recoveries" are tracked by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The state says it "Is defined as the number of persons with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis who are alive 30 days post-onset (or referral date if onset is not available) based upon total cases, deaths, and any clinical info available."
  • "Confirmed" cases refer to a person who was tested for COVID-19 and tested positive.
  • "Probable" cases refer to a person who is exhibiting symptoms after coming in contact with a person who has a confirmed case. Though a probable case is not confirmed, the state will monitor the person for symptoms.
  • "Total cases" refers to the number of confirmed and probable cases combined. We will always clarify how many of the total cases are confirmed and how many are probable in our daily updates.

Here are the separate Idaho health districts we are monitoring to get the latest statewide COVID-19 case total:
