Upon a recent review of protocols by the President’s Office, it will now be acceptable to use campus vans, etc. as long as masks are worn and all travelers test (PCR) the day before travel. Requests for group testing will need to be submitted to the COVID Testing Center. Multi-day trips connected with provided transportation will need to have a plan in place on how to transport “home”/back any sick individuals. Verification of testing will be the responsibility of the group organizing travel. Participating individuals can request exemptions from testing (associated with the 90-day window following a positive test and outside testing) through 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.
When an individual is tested at the COVID Testing Center, they will receive an email confirming that they have been tested. Exemptions from testing can also be received from the Boise State Public Health office (for asymptomatic individuals who have tested positive for COVID in the last 90- days) and those emails can also be requested by your team. However, actual test results cannot be requested of individuals. Any individual who tested positive will be contacted directly by Boise State Public Health.
Organizing groups/departments must have a plan in place for the return transportation of any individual(s) who become ill during travel to avoid exposing others to any illness.
