What You Need to Know

COVID-19 Travel Tips: As you get ready to travel this holiday season, here are a few COVID-19 tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
  • Check state and local restrictions from your destination before traveling.
  • Monitor for symptoms different from your normal baseline.
  • Do not travel if you have been exposed to COVID-19, you are sick, or if you test positive for COVID-19.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth while traveling especially on public transportation, airplanes, or in large groups.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, the CDC recommends testing before and after travel.
  • For additional COVID-19 guidance about domestic and international travel visit the CDC website.
Employee Vaccination Requirement: To comply with federal vaccine reporting requirements, all UO employees must verify their COVID-19 vaccination or exemption. Employees should use this online form to upload their documentation. The deadline to comply is December 6. 

UO Vaccination Rates

Faculty and Staff: 95.3% 
Students: 96.8%
The vaccination rate is updated on the COVID-19 Safety Dashboard every Monday. All UO faculty, staff, and students are required to be fully vaccinated or submit a vaccine exemption and undergo weekly testing. UO vaccination rates are a key measure in becoming a "fully vaccinated" campus under CDC guidelines for higher education. 

Featured FAQ

Does UO's Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP) provide test results for traveling?
MAP is not registered with airlines, states, or countries for travel testing. We encourage individuals to utilize commercial COVID-19 test providers who administer pre-travel screening tests that can provide results within 72 hours. You may also refer to Lane County's list of testing resources, but check with testing facilities to ensure they meet the test type and time frame requirements. Results through MAP are typically available within 2-4 business days of the test.
More information about MAP including the upcoming week's testing schedule, what to expect at your test, and testing locations can be found here.
