Episode 203: The Legislature Kept Working As The Coronavirus Spread

Welcome to episode 20 of the Extra Credit podcast.

Most Idaho schools have closed amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, but Gov. Brad Little has so far declined to call for a statewide closure. Meanwhile, the virus has spread across more Idaho counties and Little announced an isolation order for Blaine County on Thursday afternoon. All the while, the Legislature kept working. We’ll explain how the situation at the Statehouse went from surreal to scary.

Be sure to check back next week for another new episode of Extra Credit.
