Weekly COVID-19 update

Reopening Operations Committee

In an ongoing effort to keep the community informed, the Reopening Operations Committee is committed to offering statewide, regional and campus public health updates to our community every Friday.

On campus, we continue our quiet period through the end of the semester. Please continue to do the following things. 

  • Reduce the number of people with whom you’re in contact.
  • Limit traffic in campus buildings.
  • Participate in classes remotely where possible (check with your faculty).
  • Avoid gatherings.
  • Don't travel, except for emergencies, until you leave for break.

With positivity rates on the rise in the region and across the country, please remain vigilant in your mitigation efforts. It is strongly advised that you plan ahead before traveling and that you quarantine before departing and after arriving at your destination.

This week, Gov. Kate Brown announced additional statewide restrictions that are in effect through at least Dec. 2. Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration released new rules for workplace communication of positive COVID cases. Please read our full update for more details about how these new rules and restictions affect our community. Thank you.
