What You Need to Know

  • The UO is partnering with Lane County Public Health to provide access to COVID-19 vaccinations. UO employees can express their interest in receiving a vaccination, as supply becomes available, by completing this pre-registration form. The pre-registration process is part of our vaccination preparation and planning. We do not know when the vaccine will be available to the UO community.

  • Lane County is hosting a virtual town hall at 7:00 p.m. tonight (Thursday, January 21) on the COVID-19 vaccination effort. Experts and stakeholders will discuss the current situation and the plan to vaccinate country residents.

  • Spring term instruction will remain a mix of remote and in-person courses as announced by President Schill.

Featured FAQ

Are masks required on campus?
Yes. Faculty, staff, students, visitors, and vendors are required to wear face coverings indoors and outdoors on campus except when alone in a space.

The UO’s face-covering regulation and the CDC's guidance on the use of cloth masks [en Español] provide additional information about face coverings.
