Total cases subtract out cases no longer monitored = 794 people in the 5 northern counties that have tested positive for COVID.
Estimated population in the 5 counties that Panhandle Health covers - 235,404. People with COVID now divided by 235,404 = .3% So not even a half of a percent.
46 deaths divided by total cases = 1.2% (Since March) People die every day from all kinds of things. It is sad but a part of life.
So why do we have a mask mandate? Ada County (Boise) is much higher...
