What You Need to Know
Here is some helpful information as Lane County moves into the Extreme Risk category tomorrow:
- Food served on campus will be sold as grab and go.
- The Student Rec Center will be moving some cardio and strength training programs back outside to The Playground and there will be limited reservations available for the indoor pool, tennis center and climbing wall.
- PE classes remain unaffected.
- The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art remains closed to the public.
- The Museum of Natural and Cultural History is open 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Thursday through Sunday and is using a timed ticketing system for visitors. Visitors are advised to reserve tickets online prior to arrival.
The university has concluded four vaccination clinics, providing more than 4,600 employees and students their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Thank you to all of the staff, student employees, and volunteers who helped these clinics run so smoothly.
The CDC this week relaxed its outdoor masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. For now, the UO is continuing to follow Oregon’s current outdoor mask rules by requiring face coverings in outdoor public spaces on campus, regardless of individual vaccination status or physical distancing. This may be reconsidered if the OHA relaxes its current masking requirement.
The UO's Monitoring and Assessment Program, also known as MAP, reached a milestone this week having provided more than 75,000 free COVID-19 tests. All asymptomatic members of the Lane County community age 3 and older are encouraged to take advantage of this free public service. MAP has opened up 2,500 testing slots over four days next week. Please register by 5:00 p.m. the day before you would like to be tested.
