What is Boise State's response to Covid-19 at this time?
With guidance from public health experts, state and local government officials, and other subject matter experts, Boise State is phasing in a plan to safely scale back up to a fully open campus. Among other plans, this includes rolling out a strategy to offer lower-density, face-to-face classes on campus paired with robust online instructional capabilities, how the university will use diagnostic and antibody testing, contact tracing, personal protective equipment, quarantine protocols, and other infection mitigation strategies, and contingency plans in the event of a resurgence of COVID-19 cases during fall term. For full details, see Boise State’s central COVID-19 page.
What is the plan for course delivery for Fall 2020?
The university’s goal is to resume as many face-to-face courses this fall as we are able to with appropriate social distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols. We plan to welcome students to our classrooms and to on-campus housing with well-defined plans for preventing and mitigating surges of COVID-19 cases. Specific plans about safety protocol in on-campus housing, sporting events, and more will be announced by the University on May 25. For full details, see Boise State’s central COVID-19 page.
What is the current plan for Fall 2020 for students who choose to live on campus?
Plans for reopening student housing and minimizing the spread of COVID-19 among residential students and staff will be announced on May 25.
