CES Guidelines Related to COVID-19

After careful consideration of the present COVID-19 circumstances, the leadership of CES has adopted temporary guidelines which will be effective March 16, 2020.⁠

The following applies to CES institutions of higher education:⁠

LARGE GATHERINGS⁠

There will be no gathering for large events such as commencements, convocations, devotionals, conferences, public lectures, performances and concerts. These events may be cancelled, streamed, or recorded and posted for on-demand use, as determined by leadership at each institution.⁠

CLASSES AND SMALL GATHERINGS⁠

Courses will continue, though faculty are encouraged to be flexible and consider remote alternatives when providing instruction. Each institution is asked to consider local circumstances and guidelines from public health and government agencies and comply with those directions.⁠

BYU-Idaho will be following CES guidelines for all public health concerns. The Church continues to monitor the situation worldwide and has outlined recommended measures for staying healthy.
