COVID-19 Exposure Scenarios and Guidance for Students and Employees

Revised September 15, 2022.

The following guidance is for University of Oregon students and employees (faculty, officers of administration, classified staff, student employees), and other affiliated individuals who are accessing university property.

UO students and employees who have tested positive, develop symptoms, or think they have been exposed to COVID-19 should follow this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guide to determine whether isolation or testing is needed and next steps.

Free COVID-19 testing is available through MAP for asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic individuals who do not need a medical evaluation.

Students and employees who have symptoms and test negative through a home rapid antigen test, should stay home and test again with another home rapid antigen test in 48 hours or get a PCR test to confirm the result. Individuals should stay home until symptoms have improved and they have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without using fever reducing medication.
