Isolation and Exposure

Isolation and quarantine help protect the Boise State campus and general community by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.

  • Isolation¬†separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
  • Quarantine¬†separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

Boise State Public Health adheres to CDC guidance for all campus isolation and exposure protocols.

Information about isolation and exposure for our campus community is available by reaching out to Boise State Public Health at or (208) 426-2968.

Specific to COVID-19,  the CDC has developed an isolation and exposure calculator to help persons determine if they need to isolate or take other steps to prevent disease spread.

The following sections outline isolation and exposure guidelines specific to COVID-19 including how and when you may need to isolate and the steps you need to take if you have been exposed.

Wellbeing resources are also available for individuals to use while they are in isolation for a communicable disease or are following associated exposure guidelines.
