Spring Semester Return to Campus COVID Testing
The university is requiring residence hall students as well as faculty and staff who plan to work on campus spring semester to be tested for COVID after winter break. The COVID Testing Center will close December 22 and reopen January 4 for spring semester testing. General testing requirements are outlined below:
Residence hall students, faculty and staff, and Rec Center patrons who are on campus between December 24 and January 3 and planning to return to campus on January 4 or 5 should be tested on either day and again on January 12 or 13.
Residence hall students, faculty and staff, and Rec Center patrons who return to campus on or after January 6 need only test once within 72 hours of their return to campus.
Asymptomatic individuals who are awaiting test results may go about their normal campus activities while observing public health protocols.
Residential students traveling out of the area for break are strongly encouraged to get a PCR test no more than 72 hours prior to commencing travel back to Boise. PCR test results from a non-university provider should be emailed to email@example.com. Anyone who tests positive prior to traveling should delay travel plans until their isolation period is complete.
Individuals who have had a positive PCR test within the last 90 days will not need to be re-tested.
All other students may elect to be tested, but are not required to test unless they develop COVID symptoms.
There are no copays associated with testing at the Boise State COVID Testing Center for any member of the campus community.
For additional information and to register for a testing appointment, please visit the COVID testing center page.
