Effective July 6, 2022, face masks are once again required at the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine.
On Tuesday, July 5, ICOM’s COVID-19 Task Force issued updated guidance that coincides with the COVID transmission rate in Ada County, recently categorized as “high.” Both Central District Health and the CDC recommend wearing a mask when in an indoor public space, regardless of vaccination status where community transmission levels are high.
At ICOM, students, employees and visitors are asked to abide by the following:
- Masks may be removed when alone in a room, or with consent of all individuals in that room.
- Cloth masks are fine, but N-95 masks may be worn at the distraction of the individual and are available at the security desk.
- Course directors will decide if cloth or N-95 masks will be worn in close contact, in-person training.
- Individuals who are ill are asked to stay home.
