Hospitals remain stressed. Is Idaho close to deactivating COVID-19 crisis standards?

After months of record-breaking numbers, Idaho in the past few weeks has seen a drop in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and its test positivity rate. The state might finally have seen the worst of its fourth COVID-19 surge.

Even though the number of patients has declined, the caseload has not dropped enough so as not to overwhelm providers, public health officials say. Dave Jeppesen, Idaho Health and Welfare director, has said the state is looking for improvements on factors that brought him to first activate crisis standards. Those include hospitals no longer needing to use nontraditional spaces to admit patients, boarding patients that must be admitted in emergency rooms or seeing staffers overrun by the patient volume.
