Health Services is open and continues to meet the medical and mental health needs of the university population. We are also here to answer questions and offer guidance as COVID-19 evolves.
We are now offering both in-person and telehealth appointments. Please call us at (208) 426-1459, or talk with your provider to see if your medical, counseling, or psychiatry appointment is appropriate for telehealth services via Zoom’s HIPAA-compliant platform.
For the fall 2020 semester in-person visits are available for:
- Medical Services, via appointment or urgent care (walk-in). It is best to call for an appointment, even if testing for COVID.
- Crisis Counseling (walk-in) when a problem or crisis feels too overwhelming to wait for a scheduled appointment.
Massage Therapy and the Oasis Room will not be offered.
If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please call Health Services to talk to a nurse before coming to the clinic. A tent has been set up outside in the south/parking lot entrance for COVID/upper respiratory assessment. Facial coverings are required when visiting the clinic. Please observe social distancing and no visitors allowed at the is time.

The best way to prevent spread of ANY infectious disease such as this, is to utilize infection prevention and control measures.
It comes down to four major efforts:
- We will all have to wear facial coverings throughout campus — inside and, when continuous distancing isn’t possible, outside. The guidance from public health experts is as clear: even homemade cloth masks can help fight the spread of COVID-19.
- We will all have to stay at least six feet away from each other whenever possible. Seating in classrooms and labs will be adjusted. We’ll all have to use in-doors and out-doors, and watch for signs directing foot traffic in busy areas.
- We have to stay extra clean. Wash your hands. Avoid touching your face. When you take your mask off, only touch the ear straps. Clean your shared spaces.
- And we have to pay close attention to our own symptoms. Absences will be expected and excused. We will be flexible with you as you get caught up.
