Campus Clearance

If, based on your circumstances, you are required to isolate or quarantine, Boise State Public Health will work with you through phone and email communication to establish your isolation or quarantine plan, including the time that you must separate yourself from others and when you can return to in-person activities on campus. As appropriate, Public Health will also send an email to your instructors and/or supervisor letting them know that you may not attend in-person campus activities until further notice and that your ability to attend and/or participate in courses or work in any format may be impacted.

On the day prior to your return to campus date, Public Health will send an additional email to you asking you to respond regarding your current health and your ability to return to campus to participate in regular in-person activities. This final assessment is needed in order to either clear you to stop isolation or quarantine the following day or, as necessary, extend your isolation or quarantine period. If the appropriate health criteria required to stop isolation/quarantine is met, you will receive an official clearance email from Boise State Public Health and a notice of your clearance to return will be passed on to your instructors and/or supervisor.

It is VERY important that you respond to the email request from Boise State Public Health as to your health and ability to return to campus and wait until you have received final clearance emails from Boise State (clearance from other agencies/public health departments is not a substitute for clearance to return to regular housing, in-person classes, work on campus, campus activities, etc.) before stopping your isolation or quarantine.

The following steps should be taken by isolating/quarantine individuals to ensure a smooth return to all in-person campus activities:

  1. Review your isolation or quarantine plan closely noting the “return to campus” date.
  2. The day before your return to campus date, look for a new email from Boise State Public Health.
  3. Respond to the email from Boise State Public Health with the requested update.
  4. Wait to return to all in-person campus activities until you have received a clearance email response from Boise State Public Health.
  5. Look at your MyBoiseState page on your return to campus date to ensure you are cleared to return to campus. Ensure no red dot is shown to the left of the “Welcome” notice. OR Look at the Bronco ID page in your Boise State App to see that no red “X” is noted next to your name.

Viewing your real-time status

You are able to view their clearance to be on campus at all times. A real-time picture (see the screenshot examples below) of your clearance to be on campus will be available in two locations:

In addition, faculty will be able to view, in real-time, which of their students are cleared to attend in-person classes by viewing their class rosters connected to their personal faculty myBoiseState page.

If you are not cleared to return to campus, when logged into MyBoiseState, your name will have a red dot next to the “Welcome” text. An example from Billy Bronco’s page is below:

If you are using the Boise State Mobile app and select the “My Bronco ID” option, you will see your name and ID with a red “X” if you are not cleared to be on campus. Billy Bronco’s screen looks like this:

When cleared to return to campus, your screens will look like the below images:
