    3. The virus that causes novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is primarily spread from person to person. Courtrooms are considered medium exposure risk environments. To help protect the health of Idahoans, an initial screening to determine juror eligibility to serve should be conducted. Answering the medical questions will be kept confidential.

    4. 1. Are you 65 years of age or older?

    5. A. lf yes, would you like your service to be postponed for one year?

    6. 2. Do you have any medical conditions that put you at high risk for COVID-19?

      Examples are chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), immunocompromised (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant, severe obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 or higher), serious heart condition (such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies), sickle cell disease, or type 2 diabetes mellitus. [Note: COVID-19 is a new disease and this list is subject to change. Changes will be posted to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/201--ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-with-medicalconditions. html.]

    7. 3. Are you a health care worker directly involved with the diagnosis, treatment, management, or care of patients who have or are suspected of having COVID-19?

    8. If the answer to any of the above questions is YES, postpone jury service until the rise from COVID-19 is mitigated.
