What You Need to Know

Lane County has maintained a Low COVID-19 Community Level since mid-March. As the state, county, and our university resume more normal activities and operations due to improved conditions, the university is planning to end or pause some COVID-related programs.

The UO will continue to monitor our Community Level and if there is a change to medium or high, we will determine which programs and prevention measures to resume based on local public health guidance.

Spring Term

Spring instruction and operations are in person.

The UO is following CDC Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education at the direction of the Oregon Health Authority. COVID-19 safety plans, tools, and requirements to protect the UO community:


Getting vaccinated is the best thing you can do to prevent serious illness from COVID-19.

All students and employees are required to be up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations, this includes getting a booster shot when eligible. Details about reporting process are available on the Student and Employee vaccination requirement webpages. 

More than 95% of UO students and employees are fully vaccinated. Eugene and the campus neighborhood have high vaccination rates.

Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is no longer required at most large public events.

COVID-19 vaccines are available at public health clinics, pharmacies, and through health care providers.


Need COVID-19 testing?

Free COVID-19 testing is available for UO employees, students, and Lane County residents age 3 and older. MAP test results are available within 2-4 business days. This is not a rapid test.

Masks are required at COVID-19 testing sites. Masks should be worn in line even if you are outside.

If a student has viral symptoms and is unsure whether they need a medical evaluation, they should contact UHS at 541-346-2770 or their health care provider to determine if and where they should to be tested.

Individuals who develop COVID-19 symptoms and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider for information on testing. Students may also contact UHS at 541-346-2770.
