What guidance is OSU giving to fraternities and sororities regarding COVID-19?
Spring 2021 recruitment activities will occur virtually, and OSU Greeks are looking forward to continuing to provide membership opportunities to students studying remotely in the 2020-2021 academic year.
Each housed fraternity and sorority is privately owned and operated, and the CFSL is encouraging their compliance with Benton County Health Department guidance, Corvallis Fire Department guidelines, the governor’s executive orders and other requirements that may apply to them.
All Corvallis-based fraternity and sorority members have been invited to participate in weekly TRACE testing in order to continue to curb the spread of the virus. While this testing is not mandated, it is strongly encouraged so positive cases can be identified and isolated.
The fraternity/sorority community collectively is prioritizing adherence to best public health practices in ongoing planning. Fraternities/sororities are recognized student organizations and will be required to comply with applicable expectations provided by OSU for student organizations. Accountability for following OSU policies will align with the process outlined in OSU’s Code of Student Conduct.

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have symptoms, stay home; avoid close contact with others; and contact your health care provider, Student Health Services, or an emergency medical care provider.
