Press Release: Gov. Little issues proclamation for Health Care Worker Appreciation Month in Idaho

By • December 16, 2020

The following press release was sent out by Governor Brad Little on December 16th, 2020:

Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little issued a proclamation today naming December Health Care Worker Appreciation Month in Idaho.

“I ask all Idahoans to share their gratitude for health care heroes in Idaho,” Governor Little said. “We can show our gratitude by minimizing transmissible moments this holiday season. Wear a mask, avoid gatherings with people outside your household, continue to keep safe physical distance, and wash your hands regularly. As individuals, we must choose to do all we can to combat COVID-19 in order to relieve pressure on Idaho’s health care workers.”

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Idaho’s health care workers have exemplified what it means to be heroic. Workers at Idaho’s hospital and long-term care facilities put the safety and wellbeing of the patients and residents in their charge ahead of their own health. Staff are also trying to meet social and emotional needs of patients because many families are still unable to visit their loved ones.

Idahoans are encouraged to reach out to their local health care facility and ask how they can help during the crisis. Interested applicants can apply at https://idaho.carefortheaging.org/. The Idaho Health Care Association will then match you to a facility in need.

  1. So the governor made up a proclamation to remind us to obey, shut up, and if you say anything it should be to help with contributions to healthcare financial agency that help the ones in need.
    Dear mr. governor, your mandates and emergency proclamation are uncalled for according to the science.
    Your mandates are unconstitutional and have no effect of law. You are a tyrant and you are destroying the lives of thousands of the Idahoans you took an oath to serve and protect them and their constitutions.

  2. Should be for anybody who worked day in and out through all of this. Those people didn’t run off scared but yet continued to go to work faithfully

  3. Does it seem odd that our Republican governor is siding with the Democrat leaders in our state. Who does he think voted him into office, or does he even give a rip? Does he not realize his job is to work FOR us and not against us?
