UPDATE: Effective April 3, Oregon OSHA suspends all COVID-19-related workplace rules.
UPDATE: Effective June 16, 2023, Oregon State University will no longer require proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
Oregon State University provides in-person and on-site learning, teaching, work, programs and activities. We are confident we can continue to do so with the many plans and tools in place to help individuals manage their risk of COVID-19.
Vaccination Program Requirement — Effective June 16, 2023, Oregon State University will no longer require proof of COVD-19 vaccination. Currently, OSU requires all employees and students who work, learn or engage with others in-person as part of their job duties to show proof of initial COVID-19 vaccination, though exceptions are allowed based on medical or disability reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs.
Booster availability — Boosters are free of charge and available at many locations across the state. Staying up to date on your vaccines is particularly important in helping protect those with underlying health conditions.
Self-test kits (check use-by date) — Free iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Tests are available at the Corvallis and Bend campuses and Hatfield Marine Science Center. While supplies last, OSU community members can pick up these self-test kits without restrictions.
General guidance — Follow updates and recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority.
