The University of Oregon is providing information about positive and presumptive positive COVID-19 cases for residential students tested through the UO Monitoring and Assessment Program as well as any individual identified by a public health agency as being a student (living on or off-campus) or a UO employee, only when the employee has been on campus during their period of transmissibility or has been determined to be part of a workplace outbreak.
The weekly numbers are from Monday through Sunday.
About Case Reporting
These figures are based on cases reported to the UO and confirmed by a public health agency. The UO does not report the affiliation or other information about students, employees, or others affiliated with UO who test positive unless the local public health agency advises that there is a health and public safety benefit to reporting more information about the case.
When an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, local health authorities determine who they may have had close contact with and guidance is provided directly to those individuals. We strongly encourage those who are contacted by local public health departments or the UO Case Management Team to cooperate. Neither the public health authority or UO reports the number of contacts associated with cases.
Lane County COVID-19 Case and Surveillance Summary
The following chart provides information on the total number of cases reported per day, along with location on campus of any employee or student worker who was on campus during the period of transmissibility. According to Oregon Health Authority, the period of transmissibility is the time frame in which a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 can transmit the disease to others. This begins in the 48-hour period prior to symptom onset or, for asymptomatic cases, the 48 hours prior to when the specimen was collected for the test.
Individuals who are known to have been in close contact with positive cases are contacted and referred to the local public health authorities, and appropriate protocols for cleaning the affected spaces are followed. All on-campus student cases are moved to isolation.
There are no entries for dates when no cases are reported. Information for cases prior to September 20, 2021 are available on the historical cases data page.
