Washington state Governor Jay Inslee has been especially critical of Idaho's handling of the pandemic.

He's now saying too many Idaho residents are taking up hospital space in his state and voiced his frustration in a recent interview on MSNBC.

"When the Idaho politicians refuse to act with common-sense measures, it not only dangers Idaho citizens, it endangers Washington citizens," Inslee said.

Gov. Brad Little's office on Monday pushed back.

“Governor Inslee blames Idaho, yet Spokane County and the surrounding area on his side of the border continue to be hot spots for virus activity with the lowest vaccination rates in the entire State of Washington, despite Governor Inslee issuing vaccine mandates and mask mandates," Little said.
