COVID-19 Update
April 01, 2021  •   coronavirus.uoregon.edu


  • Good vaccine news! In addition to the University of Oregon providing vaccine clinics this month, Lane County has expanded COVID-19 vaccines eligibility to include UO frontline workers. Those eligible can use the Lane County’s vaccine scheduler now.

    New eligibility includes: 

    • All frontline workers including UO employees who meet state criteria.
    • People 16-45 with an underlying health condition.
    • People living in multi-generational households.

  • You may qualify for other personal reasons or as a frontline worker and this may a faster route for getting a vaccine rather than waiting for UO clinics to begin. Benton, Coos, and Douglas counties have also expanded their eligibility.

  • Remember, COVID-19 vaccine clinics for all UO employees will begin the week of April 19. Employees will receive an invitation no later than April 12 to schedule a vaccination appointment at one of several scheduled clinics. More details are available on Around the O.

  • UO students—please log in and complete the Student Vaccine Interest Survey. This will help the UO know you are interested in signing up for the COVID-19 vaccine on the UO Eugene campus in May and a follow-up vaccine 21 days later. Please complete the survey so we are able to order an appropriate quantity of COVID-19 vaccine for our community. Students 16 and older will be eligible under Oregon law to receive a COVID-19 vaccine no later than May 1, 2021. More information is available on the vaccine webpage.

  • Duo two-step login becomes mandatory for all UO students through a series of assigned Duo enrollment deadlines April 7–June 2. Students must register a device for Duo by their deadline to continue accessing remote classes in Canvas and Zoom. For help, contact the Technology Service Desk 6:00 a.m.–midnight by live chat or phone (541-346-4357).

Tip of the Week: When to get a COVID-19 test after travel
Get a viral test 3-5 days after travel.

Featured FAQ

What type of classes will the UO hold for summer term? 
The UO is planning summer term sessions to be a mix of remote, hybrid, and in-person courses, as they have been in spring. We may offer more in-person classes as the summer goes on, if Oregon Health Authority guidance for higher education is updated. We are planning to be mostly in person for fall term.
