COVID-19 Cases


Community testing continuing: COVID-19 testing for the local community through the UO MAP program is continuing this week and throughout the summer. Asymptomatic testing is available for anyone, ages 3 and up. Consider this free and easy testing option for children preparing to enter summer camps and other group activities. Pre-registration is recommended but walk-ups are accepted.
Distancing on campus: While the Oregon Health Authority and the UO no longer require masks outdoors, Oregon OSHA does still require distancing (both indoors and outdoors), except when it's not possible to do so. Outdoor work and events can occur without masks, but plans need to be made to keep employees and participants physically distant.
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.
