South Central Public Health District is monitoring the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation very closely.
Our staff is working closely with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and healthcare providers throughout the region. SCPHD encourages everyone to take precautions to avoid all respiratory diseases including staying home whenever possible, canceling all non-essential travel, keeping six feet between you and other people, and washing your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Call your medical provider if you:
Are concerned you might have been exposed, and
Have a cough or shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Or at least two of these symptoms:
Repeated shaking with chills
New loss of taste or smell
If you do not have a medical provider call 2-1-1 for assistance.

A probable case is when an individual meets clinical criteria and epidemiologic evidence without a confirmed laboratory test.
A person is no longer monitored when they have stayed home for our recommended period of time AND have not had a fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use medicine that reduces fevers) AND other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved) AND at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
