The Corona Corps is a University of Oregon-led initiative focused on providing case investigation, contact tracing, and case management support for positive COVID-19 cases or close contacts within the UO community. Highly trained student members of the Corona Corps guide students through the COVID-19 isolation and quarantine process, and connect students to resources. Resources include but are not limited to food, housing, health care, financial assistance, mental health support, and academic accommodations.
Developed by the UO’s Center for Global Health and University Health Services, the Corona Corps engages student team members to support the UO and local community to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The Corona Corps also works with UO instructors to assist with the containment of COVID-19 in classes.
UO students who have tested positive or think they have been exposed to COVID-19 are encouraged to review the COVID-19 exposure scenarios and guidance webpage.
If you are a UO student who requires support with COVID-related health concerns:
The Corona Corps Care Team can be contacted Monday-Friday 9 a.m - 5 p.m. at 541-346-2292 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Care Team is closed on university observed holidays.
The Corona Corps/Oregon Public Health Corps offers UO students an opportunity to get involved with the public health response to the coronavirus pandemic and other health emergencies. Students receive extensive training and can participate in a range of projects and activities including as contact monitors, case managers and case investigation support staff.
Participation in the Corona Corps/Oregon Public Health Corps is open to UO-enrolled students.
