Correction to the message regarding quarantine

Reopening Operations Committee

We apologize for the confusion caused by the wording of the email we sent to undergraduate students yesterday afternoon. We intended to say “All students who are planning to attend in-person courses are strongly recommended to quarantine 14 days prior to their arrival on campus.” Although Oregon has not instituted a quarantine requirement at this time, this recommendation brings us into alignment with policy decisions made in a number of other states. We see this as an additional and important strategy aimed at promoting the health of our community of students, faculty, and staff. Please find the corrected message here.


We recognize such a quarantine before returning to campus may not be possible for some due to previous travel plans or other responsibilities including work, caring for family, etc. In such cases we encourage minimal contact as much as possible — avoid large gatherings and events, maintain a six-foot distance between yourself and others, and practice vigilant handwashing.


Again, we apologize for causing undue stress and confusion with our message. These are difficult circumstances for all of us to navigate but through all of this uncertainty, Willamette remains committed to our mission of a collaborative residential learning community and to providing the best possible education experience for all of our students. Thank you for your patience, your flexibility, and your commitment to our university community.
