GOVERNOR: Where are you?

March 24, 2020 1:00 AM

As the rest of the country self quarantine, Idaho seems to believe we are immune to this virus. Why are we not following the rest of the country?

I watch our local news and have yet to see our governor address Idaho residents. We are 300 miles from Seattle with an interstate running from Seattle through North Idaho. We don’t have magic powers to protect ourselves.

Please listen to other states and do what we all know is the right thing. STAY HOME. This is REAL.

I know I don’t like the national press bashing Idaho for its lack of urgency. Makes me ashamed to be a lifelong resident of North Idaho. Let’s step up and follow suit. We are not invincible. It’s selfish and disrespectful to the great people of Idaho
