We’re here to help Idaho businesses affected by COVID-19.


The novel Coronavirus began shortly after the start of the new year and has caused disruptions in ordinary business functions and economic injury throughout the state. The event led to a State Disaster Declaration signed by Governor Brad Little on March 13th, 2020.

On March 25th, 2020, Governor Little issued a Stay-Home Order and signed an extreme emergency declaration. The stay-home order is effective immediately and in place for 21 days. Idahoans may leave their residences only for essential activities, essential governmental functions, or to operate essential businesses. For answers to frequently asked questions, please review guidance from the Attorney General’s Office. For the latest COVID-19 information and official State updates, visit coronavirus.idaho.gov.
