Masking guidelines and visitor policies

Reopening Operations Committee

There have been rapid changes to COVID mitigation guidelines from the CDC and Oregon Health Authority in recent weeks. 

The following guidance, effective immediately, provides clarification for our campus operations and will be in place until you are notified of an official change in Willamette policy, regardless of any guidance that may be communicated by the CDC or OHA.

Masks on campus (applies to vaccinated and unvaccinated community members)

  • Outdoors Masks are not required outdoors on campus as long as people maintain six feet of physical distancing and are not in a large outdoor gathering.
  • Indoors — Masks are required indoors unless you are in a private workspace.

Guest and visitor policy

  • Outdoor spaces on campus will be open to visitors but buildings will remain closed except to those who are here on official university business and with prior approval.
  • Guests and visitors are not required to wear masks outdoors but are required to wear them indoors.
