In an official notice on March 26, BYU-Idaho sent a response to the state’s stay-at-home order.
“Yesterday, Governor Brad Little announced a statewide stay-home order for all of Idaho and signed an emergency declaration. It is available at https://coronavirus.idaho.gov. The order is effective immediately and will remain in effect for at least 21 days.
Here is what the order means for BYU-Idaho students and employees:
To be consistent with the order and other actions by governing bodies (e.g. Federal Government, Church leaders, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, local health authorities, etc.), we advise the following:
With current COVID-19 restrictions, being in Rexburg for school will be very different. We should not expect the same experience and in-person social interactions we’ve previously enjoyed. It is our responsibility to protect ourselves and the community. There are many at-risk individuals that need all of us to be good citizens.
Following these directions will help everyone remain safe and healthy.”
