What You Need to Know

State Emergency Declaration Ends: On April 1, the state of Oregon and the UO ended their COVID-19 emergency declarations. The UO continues to monitor conditions and maintain the following efforts:

  • COVID-19 vaccine and booster requirements remain in effect. Vaccines continue to be our most effective tool against severe illness from COVID-19.
  • Free COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic individuals is available through UO's Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP).
  • Required testing continues for individuals who are unvaccinated or exempt from primary doses.
  • Masks are welcome and available on campus. They are required in health care settings.

Everyone is encouraged to take personal preventative precautions to protect themselves from COVID-19.
New Resource: COVID.gov provides an overview of COVID-19 guidance including current COVID-19 community levels, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strategies, and travel guidance.
MAP Updates: Starting in April, symptomatic testing will end at 3:30 p.m. on Fridays unless otherwise noted. The MAP schedule for asymptomatic and symptomatic testing is available on the Coronavirus Resources website and is updated Wednesday for the following week.

  • Exemption process: For information on the exemption process visit the student or employee vaccination webpages.

A second booster is now available for people over 50. Is a second booster required under the UO's vaccine requirement?
No. At this time the UO vaccine requirement is for a primary series of a COVID-19 vaccine and one booster shot when eligible. We encourage individuals to check with their health care provider for guidance about whether to receive a second booster.
