U of I Boise COVID-19 Updates
Last Updated: July 26, 2021
In line with CDC and City of Boise, effective Tuesday, May 18, 2021, face coverings are no longer required at the University of Idaho. Masks are optional in the IWC and ILJLC for vaccinated individuals. Supervisors must not ask employees their vaccination status for any reason. Employees can share their own status if they choose.
COVID-19 testing is not required to attend in-person classes at U of I Boise, but we encourage anyone who has been exposed or is showing symptoms to talk to their doctor about being tested.
In general, there is no cost to get tested for COVID-19 with most insurances. Please call your insurance provider for details. Because of testing availability in the Treasure Valley, U of I Boise is not requiring testing but instead is encouraging all students and employees to get tested if they have been exposed to COVID-19 and/or are experiencing symptoms.
All Boise-based classes will return to in-person starting fall semester 2021. Refer to the class schedule to learn more about your class format.
