For immediate COVID-19 assistance:

  • To learn more about campus public health protocols, please visit our Boise State Public Health website. 
  • Visit the Boise State Public Health Dashboard to keep up to date on campus COVID-19 numbers, Boise’s CDC community level and circulating variants.

  • On March 1st, 2024, CDC guidelines changed regarding COVID-19 isolation recommendations. This is because we are in a very different place with COVID-19 than we once were.
  • For these reasons, there are no longer requirements for isolating when you test positive for COVID-19.
  • You do not need to contact Public Health with information about a case of COVID-19 unless you live on campus and have a shared bedroom and would like to take advantage of Public Health housing.
  • Public Health’s main phone number is (208) 426-1523 for any questions.
