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 RequirementOSU 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 Free iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Tests are available at the Corvallis and Bend campuses and Hatfield Marine Science Center. Each box contains two tests. While supplies last, OSU community members can pick up these self-test kits without restrictions. 

Isolation guidelines — If you test positive for COVID-19, isolate for five days. Employees must notify OSU. Follow recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority.  

Mask guidance — Masks are welcome but no longer required at OSU. Those at higher risk should continue to wear masks.
