January 28, 2022 – Friday COVID Update

University Community, 

As Union County experiences increases in daily case numbers, it is critical that we remain diligent about following basic health behaviors:

  • Stay home if you have illness symptoms of any kind, and contact your supervisor. 
  • Complete the Daily Self Health Check in Mountie Hub before you arrive on campus. Everyone coming to campus, including fully vaccinated (boosted) students and employees, are required to complete the check each day.
  • Wear a proper face covering indoors, and wash your hands frequently. N95 and KN94  masks are encouraged. KN94s are available at entrances to several buildings.
  • Protect yourself from serious illness by keeping your vaccination status up to date and getting your booster! Uploading proof of your booster shot to Mountie Hub is optional, but very much helps EOU staff manage quarantine protocols in close contact exposure incidents.

Guidance for a range of illness and close contact exposure scenarios, as well as definitions can be found at eou.edu/coronavirus/covid-exposure

Vaccination clinic Feb. 2

12 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Quinn Practice Gym

Make an appointment at chdinc.org/feb2-eou-clinic or walk-in (wait times will vary).

All vaccines and boosters will be available, as well as general information about COVID vaccines. Those who have received a booster shot are not required to quarantine if they’re exposed to COVID-19 and don’t show signs of illness. 

Testing clinics for students Tuesdays and Fridays

Student Affairs has resources to test symptomatic and COVID-positive students, as well as those students who have been exposed to COVID-19. These students must test negative before they return to in-person classes. Additional information has been sent to students via email. 

Employees who have symptoms or need a test have several options

  1. Order free at-home tests provided by the federal government at covidtests.gov.
  2. Go to your doctor’s office or urgent care. Please do not visit an emergency department/room for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.
  3. Attend weekly testing on Tuesdays at the Union County Fairgrounds.

Students with questions should contact Student Affairs (saffairs@eou.edu) or call the COVID Hotline at 541-962-3260. Employees with questions should contact their supervisor or Human Resources (hr-group@eou.edu).

Thank you for your continuing patience and diligence.
