Social Distancing Policies (Student)
- If you OR someone that you are living with while attending courses at ISU is in a CDC high risk/vulnerable population, please contact Disability Services as soon as possible (BEFORE the first week of classes).
- Idaho State University expects that all individuals participating in academic programs will continue adhering to current CDC guidelines regarding face coverings, which will allow us to maintain a safe classroom environment, continue face-to-face instruction, and meet our shared duty to care for others in our community. These guidelines currently state unvaccinated individuals should continue taking preventive measures, including wearing a face covering. The university also strongly encourages all individuals to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Mandatory face coverings for all students may be expected in the following instructional circumstances: 1) where physical distancing is not possible, 2) Clinical courses, and 3) University group travel.
- Enter the lab using the ENTER door and exit using the EXIT door. Look for the signs.
- BEFORE and AFTER lab clean the bench top, computer keyboard, mouse, and screen, and other lab equipment with the available wipes.
- If you have symptoms OR have been exposed to COVID-19:
- Contact your primary care provider via phone or University Health at (208) 282-2330 to determine the need for COVID-19 testing.
- Contact your lab instructor once it is determined that you will be tested for COVID-19 with an electronic note from your doctor so the instructor can make arrangements for lab content delivery during quarantine. The note from the doctor needs to state the date the test was ordered and when the test was given.
- If you test positive for COVID-19 report your illness to ISU using the COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, EXPOSURE & TEST RESULT SELF-REPORTING FORM.
- Once you receive your test results, contact your lab instructor with an electronic note from your doctor that indicates the results of your test so you can attend lab in-person or further arrangements for online lab content delivery can be made. If test results are not received by the instructor in the normal testing time-frame, you will not be given access to the online labs nor can you attend the lab in-person.
