Coronavirus information


With a dramatic decline in COVID-19 cases and new CDC guidance, masks are no longer required at EOU’s La Grande campus. Our collective effort to observe health and safety recommendations has kept Mountaineers free from widespread infection. As pandemic restrictions unwind, updates will be posted here and shared with students and employees via email.   

COVID-19 Update

April 22, 2022

University Community, 

Thank you for continuing to ensure EOU remains a safe and healthy place to work and learn. As we continue to progress through spring term, future COVID-related updates for the university community will be made on an as-needed basis. Please continue to monitor EOU Infoline for news and information. 

COVID-19 reporting protocols

EOU employees must continue to promptly report the following two situations by directly contacting their supervisor:

  1. Employees who have positive test results confirming a COVID-19 infection;
  2. Employees who have been instructed to self-quarantine by a medical provider or public medical authority due to presumptive or confirmed COVID-19 infection.

Reminder: Supervisor COVID-19 Positive Infection Report (PIR)

The Supervisor COVID-19 Positive Infection Report (PIR) is now available in Mountie Hub. This form must be completed by the supervisor when an employee reports that they have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been instructed to self-quarantine by a medical provider or public health authority.

For questions about the PIR, email

EOU’s Executive Leadership Team will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation both on and off campus and inform the university community of any new developments such as case trend lines and changes to current protocols.
