Event protocols are among a few of the COVID-19 preparedness and mitigation strategies considered in UO's overall risk assessment.

Updated Dining Guidance The UO has updated its guidance about how to safely eat while on campus. Dining outside is the best option. However, the UO face covering regulation does allow individuals to unmask when actively eating and drinking in appropriate places. Eating and drinking is not allowed in classrooms, labs, work areas where toxic materials are stored, or areas with preexisting rules prohibitions. Read the full dining guidance.

UO Vaccination Rates

Faculty and staff: 95.3% 
Students: 96.3%
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.

COVID-19 Cases

UO: There were 57 members of the UO community who tested positive or were considered presumptive positive in the last seven days (October 4-10).
OHA: State and county cases and trends are reported on the Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 data page. State and county vaccine distribution is reported on the Oregon Heath Authority vaccination trends page.


How to replace a vaccine card:  If you were vaccinated in Oregon, submit an Adult Record Request through OHA. If you received your vaccination out of state, the CDC recommends contacting your state health department's immunization information system; your info should be added to that registry when you get vaccinated. 
Tip: Once you receive a replacement, take a picture of your card. This way, if it is misplaced or lost, you can use the photo as proof of vaccination.
Symptom Self-Check: Before coming to campus, perform a symptom self-check. Pay attention to anything you are experiencing outside your baseline (what is normal for you). The COVID-19 symptom self-check tool is available on the University of Oregon mobile app. Download the app from the iTunes store or Google Play.
Prevention: The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention outline some general precautions to minimize the spread of respiratory diseases.
