The Corona Corps is a University of Oregon-led initiative focused on providing contact monitoring and case management support for positive COVID-19 cases or close contacts within the UO community, the greater Eugene/Springfield area and throughout Lane County.
Developed by the UO’s Center for Global Health and University Health Services and operated in partnership with Lane County Department of Public Health [en Español] and the Oregon Health Authority, the Corona Corps engages 50 team members, primarily students, to form a monitoring team and a care team to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Corona Corps Teams
Both teams can be reached by completing the Corona Corps Care Team webform.
The Corona Corps offers UO students an opportunity to get involved with the public health response to the coronavirus pandemic. Students receive extensive training and can participate as contact monitors, case managers and case investigation support staff.
Students are supported by UO faculty and staff and receive extensive training and access to technology to participate in the remote support. Students work with the guidance of the Lane County Department of Public Health and in coordination with the Oregon Health Authority.
Participation in the Corona Corps is also open to students from higher education institutions throughout the West Coast and the Pacific Rim. Courses and training programs will be remote and often linked to each students’ particular plan of study and interests.
