What You Need to Know

  • COVID-19 testing during the week of January 4 will be focused on returning UO students. Off-campus students can register on the COVID-19 testing reservations page. Residence halls students should register for testing via the My Housing portal. Community testing will resume the week of January 11.

Parties are tempting this time of year. But before you RSVP, you should know: If you’ve been infected with #COVID-19 without realizing it, going to just one event can expose hundreds of people—even if they weren’t there. When you weigh the risk, large gatherings just aren’t worth it. Stay home and save lives. #ChooseEachOther
