The Idaho Board of Health and Welfare will hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. MT Thursday, Nov. 18, via Webex and in Boise to consider a new temporary rule regarding crisis standards of care in Idaho. The previous temporary rule expired Nov. 17 because the Idaho Legislature adjourned sine die on that same day.
