EOU COVID-19 Data Dashboard

EOU’s coronavirus data dashboard has been updated to reflect the 2021-22 academic year. In 2020-21 EOU saw 157 positive cases, 93 of which were among off-campus students. Cases peaked in late September, during winter closure, and in early January. Over 6,000 tests were conducted during the year, with a 2.5% positivity rate.

About our Data

Positive Cases

Positive cases include cases reported from multiple sources, including tests administered by Eastern Oregon University Health Services, self-reports, local health authorities, and other information sources. Cumulative case numbers include the daily totals as displayed.  


Testing data includes all tests performed and completed at Eastern Oregon University Student Health Services since September 8, 2020, and does not include tests performed at local testing centers. Test results are shown on the date of the test, not the date the result was received.  The totals for recent dates may change as additional results are received.  

EOU’s screening testing of all newly-arriving students is likely to detect asymptomatic infections that would not have been reported otherwise. Detecting and isolating asymptomatic individuals will reduce the chance that they unknowingly pass the disease on to others.  


Self-reported data includes reports made by students and employees who have either been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or is presumed to be infected based on symptoms or close contact exposure. For the purposes of this website, Eastern Oregon University began tracking self-reported cases on September 8, 2020.

Quarantine and Isolation

Eastern Oregon University, its Student Health Services, and Union County Center for Human Development may place individuals in isolation upon notification of a positive test or quarantine if an individual has been in close contact with someone who is positive or presumed positive. Students who do not live in on-campus housing are required to isolate or quarantine in place, and must remain in quarantine or isolation until released by Student Health Services. While under quarantine or isolation, individuals are not allowed to leave their living space, except for healthcare or a medical emergency.

Eastern Oregon University has identified buildings on campus to serve as quarantine and isolation spaces for students currently living in on-campus housing. Students are placed in and released from quarantine and isolation housing at the direction of Eastern Oregon University Student Health Services.

Compliance with a quarantine or isolation directive is a part of Eastern Oregon University’s community standards, and failure to abide by or follow a directive will subject students to disciplinary action.
