Why am I reporting the news because I'm not a reporter? Unfortunately, 2020 has a way to throw all your expectations out the window. Get comfortable with the uncomfortable.

We will get a special announcement being carried on KTVB News Channel 7 and Idaho.go this afternoon at 3 p.m. regarding COVID-19.

My wife went to visit family on Saturday and text me that evening, "what do you think the Governor is going to announce?" Could Gov. Little be sounding an alarm less than a week from Halloween? I don't mean to sound insensitive, selfish, or expressing personal feelings. I'm posting a general reaction that you're about to hear.

Now that I've given you all of that it's time to brace yourself. We've been dealing with coronavirus to a point that people just want to get it over with. We're able to eat out and visit businesses without waiting in a line outside. The Governor will speak at 3 p.m. and this comes in the wake of more than 1,000 new cases recorded. Cases begin to soar across the country and now we have an announcement being called, "Important announcement about COVID-19 in Idaho."

Hubbard Elementary in Kuna just announced three staff members tested positive for coronavirus. They go remote Monday. Things are far from normal.

You can watch the press conference on Channel 7 and gov.idaho.gov
