Obtaining COVID-19 vaccination is a priority because a fully vaccinated community is the best way to protect our individual and collective health and safety. Also, it is only through widespread vaccinations that EOU can further loosen or remove restrictions that are inhibiting our ability to create the on-campus university experience we all thrive within. Removing restrictions will have a positive impact on the social and mental wellbeing of our students and employees.
Employees teaching courses fully online and not engaging in any activities and/or events on the EOU campus are not required to be vaccinated. However, regional center staff who wish to travel to campus or engage in on-campus meetings and events must comply with vaccination policy.
Students attending courses fully online and not engaging in any activities and/or events on the EOU campus are not required to be vaccinated. EOU will follow the policies set by our host agencies at all of our university sites.
Yes, exemptions are allowed for medical and non-medical reasons. The process for students and employees to follow for requesting an exemption will be provided in the coming weeks..
Yes, you will be required to be vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination.
We urge all that are able to be vaccinated to do so as soon as possible. Information about how to submit proof of vaccination will be provided prior to Fall Term 2021.
EOU will work with any international students and employees who may have received a vaccine that is not approved for use in the United States (i.e. AstraZeneca).
EOU will not require short-term visitors or speakers to be vaccinated, though they will need to observe all required health and safety precautions.
Consistent with current CDC guidance, vaccinated individuals who have been in close contact with a known COVID-19 positive person will not need to quarantine. Students and employees with COVID-19 illness symptoms will continue to be required to quarantine whether vaccinated or not.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, is a law that prevents health care professionals from sharing private health information without the patient’s permission. Generally, the law pertains to a health care setting. It does not prohibit EOU, or other institutions or businesses, from setting a policy that requires people to provide evidence of their own vaccination status in order to return to campus. Individuals can then choose whether to disclose by showing proof of vaccination. Employers requiring proof of vaccination status of employees has been repeatedly confirmed to be permissible by the EEOC and does not violate discrimination in employment laws.
