Lane County returns to the high risk level tomorrow after spending a week at extreme risk. It remains important for everyone to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, not gathering in large groups, keeping physically distanced, and taking other safety precautions.
Vaccines: Given the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations to public health, the UO is completing outreach to campus constituents to receive input that will inform an eventual policy. We know this decision is important to our campus community, and we expect to communicate something soon.
Vaccine Access: The UO continues to provide access to COVID-19 vaccines for our campus community through UO clinics and jointly sponsored community clinics. In addition, it's now easier than ever to get a vaccine. Lane County Public Health is now accepting walk-ins at the vaccination clinics. Appointments are still encouraged.

Featured FAQs

What is the university doing to encourage the campus community to follow COVID-19 health restrictions and guidance and not gather in large groups?

We continue to work hard to educate students, faculty, and staff about the importance of protecting themselves and the community by wearing masks, not gathering, keeping distance, and other measures. UO students are expected to follow all university rules and state orders to reduce the spread of COVID-19. These expectations are part of our code of conduct. 

What should campus or community members do if they see concerning behavior?
If you are concerned about a specific situation off campus, please notify us through the COVID-19 behavioral concern reporting form. To report an unruly gathering call the Eugene police non-emergency number at 541-682-5111. For more information on campus neighborhoods, please refer to this Your Neighbors and You brochure.
