The Panhandle Health District (PHD) has identified community transmission of COVID-19 in Boundary and Shoshone counties.

Community transmission, also referred to as community spread, has now been identified in all five northern counties: Kootenai, Bonner, Benewah, Boundary and Shoshone.

Community spread means at least one person has been infected with the virus and through contact tracing we are unable to determine how or where they became infected.

The individual(s) did not travel and had no identified contact with another person with COVID-19.

PHD urges all residents to assume the virus could be anywhere in the community and surrounding counties.
