Message From the Board of Directors

The Coronavirus, COVID-19, is a significant threat to the health of our nation and it appears this crisis may not end soon. Sheriffs will continue to serve and provide public safety services; however, you will note modifications to times of public access to certain operations such as driver’s license services and jail visitations. We are in the last phase of Governor Little's reopening plan. Sheriffs continue to monitor the virus's movement and growth, making adjustments to operations as necessary.

How Long Can COVID-19 Survive?

COVID remains persistent in Idaho, not only in the general population, but in our colleges and universities as well as our  jail populations. Governor Little recently announced that Idaho will remain in Phase 4 as virus cases and hospital admissions are increasing. 

The Little administration is making plans to distribute vaccinations, when available, to those who want them. It is unknown when they will be available, however most experts believe wide scale distribution will be ready sometime in the spring of 2021.

The past few weeks have been incredibly challenging for law enforcement as calls mount for reform, defunding and even dismantling of police agencies, leading both new and veteran officers to question whether to stay in the profession.

One officer helping to better connect cops with their communities is Ryan Tillman who details in this article why it is time to become law enforcement change agents. A companion piece by Gordon Graham argues the need for acknowledgment that law enforcement does have problems that need to be addressed, but that we need officers to be part of the fixing process.

A study done by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases' Laboratory of Virology in Hamilton, Montana helps to answer this question.

This study found that COVID-19 can survive up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard, and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. It also found that the virus can hang as droplets in the air for several hours. 

Continue to clean all surfaces. If surfaces are dirty, first clean them using a detergent and water, then disinfect them. A list of products suitable for use against COVID-19 is available here. This list has been pre-approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We wish to thank our Business Associates for their support
