My.EOU Portal Current Students Faculty/Staff
Over the past few days, media coverage of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has increased nationwide, and now locally with a confirmed case in eastern Oregon. At this time, we are not aware of any cases directly connected with the EOU community, and the risk to students and employees appears to be relatively low.
We are actively monitoring developments at the local, state and national levels. EOU has activated its own Crisis Management Team to manage the university’s response. We are inventorying supplies and placing hand sanitizer dispensing stations in all campus buildings. EOU is also working with the public health department and is engaged with the statewide Coronavirus Response Team.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) appears to be spread from person to person. It can take up to two weeks to develop symptoms, which include fever with a cough and/or shortness of breath. During the cold and flu season, and especially now, it is critically important to take precautions against any communicable diseases.
We are encouraging everyone in the university community to follow these basic guidelines every day:
We have created a website for the university community regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Visit EOU’s coronavirus webpage for information and important guidance for campus.
The Oregon Health Authority website and the Center for Disease Control website provide additional details on state and national developments.
EOU will continue to provide updates as this situation develops. In the event of an emergency, you will receive information from the EOU Alert Emergency Notification System.
Please make sure your emergency contact information is up-to-date by visiting eou.edu/emergency. Click on the “Contact Information Update” button, then log in and complete the form.
Students with questions should contact Student Affairs at 541-962-3635. Employees with questions should contact Human Resources at 541-962-3548.
