Featured FAQ

How do I know if I’ve been exposed to a positive case on campus?
Detailed information about COVID-19 cases in the UO community is available online on the UO case tracking page. This includes information on UO employees who have been on campus during their period of transmissibility. Each employee case report includes the building where the person works, to ensure others working in that facility are made aware. Upon notification of an employee’s positive status, UO Human Resources conducts workplace contact tracing and notifies any other employee determined to be a close contact and informed of the expectation to quarantine.
