Face Coverings Update: Face coverings are no longer required indoors for those individuals who are fully vaccinated. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face coverings indoors except when alone in a room or in an area specifically designated for eating in groups. Face coverings are also still required, regardless of vaccination status, during in-person classes and in other UO facilities or operations that continue to have state or federal guidance specific to face coverings. Refer to the face covering regulations for more information.

UO: There were no members of the UO community who tested positive or were considered presumptive positive in the past seven days (July 6-12).
Travel policy: The university has lifted the suspension of UO business travel except to countries listed by the CDC as Level 4 “Very High Risk” or “Risk Unknown” for COVID-19. Travel approvals for all other countries will return to the normal process. More information about approvals and exemptions are available on the Business Affairs travel web page.
Free COVID-19 testing: COVID-19 testing is available for all asymptomatic UO employees, students, and the Lane County community. Pre-registration is strongly advised; however, walk-ins are permitted at community testing events. Walk-ins may have longer wait times, as pre-registered participants have priority.
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.
