HEALTH AND SAFETY

 

COVID-19 VACCINATION REQUIREMENT

OSU intends to require COVID-19 vaccinations for students and employees who learn, work or engage with others in-person during classes or university activities on campus. OSU will finalize its policy and implementation details for employees following discussions with the Faculty Senate, unions and others, and announce prior to fall term. 

Vaccination Info

 

FACE COVERINGS AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING

On Aug. 5, 2021 OSU required face coverings in all public indoor settings on campuses and other locations. The policy will be reviewed weekly and any adjustments will be communicated through the COVID-19 Safety & Success website. This follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Oregon Health Authority’s recommendations that both unvaccinated and fully vaccinated people wear a face covering in public indoor settings in response to the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19.

OSU follows a general COVID-19 Safety and Success Policy that provides guidance on COVID-19 risk reduction requirements and recommendations, including the use of face coverings. The policy also includes provisions regarding positive COVID-19 case notification, isolation and quarantine procedures, and expectations for ongoing participation in contact tracing.

 

POSITIVE CASE COMMUNICATION

OSU is requesting that all faculty, staff, and students voluntarily notify the university of a positive COVID-19 diagnosis to ensure appropriate support and resources are provided to those who have been exposed or tested positive. This information will only be utilized for the specific purposes of providing support, resources and fulfilling the university’s requirement to assist local public health authorities by reporting positive cases within our community. This confidential information will be protected to the fullest extent allowed by state and federal law and only disclosed for the purposes described above.

Notify OSU-Cascades
