The Idaho Senate adjourned sine die Thursday night.
However, the House voted to meet again Friday morning despite recommendations to practice social distancing amid COVID-19 concerns.
Coronavirus has been looming over the last week of the session, causing Gov. Brad Little to be dealing with the increase in cases.
If the House stays in session for three days, it will force the Senate to return to town.
If the House adjourns on Friday, at 75 days, it will be tied for the fourth shortest session in the past 20 years.
