Based on Boise State’s updated public health guidance, individuals are required to wear facial coverings while traveling together in University vehicles.
Individuals may be interested in knowing whether or not they are positive for COVID-19 prior to personal and group travel. All individuals have the option to utilize Boise State COVID-19 testing resources prior to any group travel. Testing guidelines for these purposes are outlined below.
Within two days of the start of travel, a PCR test is performed, and a negative, lab-confirmed result is returned. Rapid antigen tests are not acceptable; a PCR test is required.
- PCR testing can be conducted at the Boise State COVID Testing Center.
- Any on-campus individual who tests positive will be contacted directly by Boise State Public Health.
Groups requesting campus vans, etc. should note the following:
- Requests for group testing will need to be submitted to the Boise State COVID Testing Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. A group is considered to have more than 20 people.
- Multi-day trips connected with provided transportation will need to have a plan in place on how to transport “home”/back any symptomatic or sick individuals.
- Boise State and local public health contact tracers will quarantine all persons in the vehicle if it was later determined that a positive person was in the vehicle during their infectious period unless they meet one of the exposure exemption criteria.
*People are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
