Is there guidance on students going home (travel) for the weekend?

Students who travel home from campus on a weekend and come back should be mindful of all health guidelines put out by the Oregon Health Authority and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including staying away from others as much as possible and closely monitoring their health for 14 days. If COVID-19 symptoms emerge, contact Student Health Services.

While traveling:

  • Wash hands often.
    • Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, after touching surfaces frequently touched by others, after blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing, and before touching their face or eating.
    • If soap and water are not available, bring and use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of hands and rub hands together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with others.
    • Keep 6 feet of physical distance from others.
  • Wear a cloth face covering in public.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Pick up food at drive-throughs, curbside restaurant service or stores.
