No. Choosing to vaccinate is a private medical decision and, as with all medical information, details regarding a person’s vaccination status are confidential. Supervisors should not ask employees their vaccination status for any reason, nor should instructors ask students. Employees and students can share their own status, if they choose.
Domestic travel is mostly open. Idaho has no restrictions. If traveling internationally, the university recommends all travelers get vaccinated prior to international travel. Follow the guidance for fully vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and monitor information from the U.S. Department of State Travel Advisories. The existing university international travel policy requires students, faculty and staff to get additional approval for university-affiliated travel to countries with a Level 3 or 4 Travel Advisory.
Employees are required to provide accommodations for students who have met eligibility requirements through the Center for Disability Access and Resources (CDAR). The University of Idaho is committed to providing equal and integrated access for individuals with disabilities to all the academic, social, cultural and recreational programs it offers. This commitment is consistent with legal requirements, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and embodies the university’s historic determination to ensure the inclusion of all members of its communities.
Faculty will be notified by CDAR regarding the type(s) of accommodations that must be provided. In some instances, these will require faculty to provide instruction to a student in an alternate format and the faculty member must do so.
If you have questions regarding accommodations, contact CDAR at email@example.com. If you need assistance providing alternate forms of instruction, contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
