While the COVID-19 pandemic may be causing a lot of job or financial stress, it may also be causing some people to feel isolated and sad.
School district and charter schools across the state are launching efforts to continue on with the school year following the Idaho State Board of Education's directive for classroom facilities to soft close, until at least April to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Why doesn't the health district say what city confirmed cases of coronavirus is found? How am I supposed to stay safe when they are not telling us where those with the virus have been? These are the questions that have been coming into the KMVT newsroom.
The state isolation order currently in place in Idaho has forced many churches like Solid Rock to hold their services online, but not everyone has easy access to internet.
While school in Idaho have been asked to soft close in Idaho until April 20, schools began distributing laptops and distance learning measures on Monday. The Twin Falls School District issued Google Chromebooks on Monday to students without computers so students can still learn online.
The city of Twin Falls will not be turning off water during the COVID-19 pandemic and is waiving connecting fees. Residents are still encouraged to keep up with their payments. Once the declaration is lifted, the city will be enforcing its policies.
