Safety and policies

The safety and well-being of our Oregon Law community has been, and always will be, a top priority. As COVID-19 cases rise throughout Oregon and the nation, the university continues to work with local and state public health authorities and peer institutions in the state to establish policies and practices to try to keep our communities safe. 

We are thrilled to report that according to University Health Services results from Monday, August 23, 99.4% of the Law School’s students, faculty and staff have complied with the vaccine notification requirement. Of those, 97.3% are fully vaccinated and 2.2% requested an exemption.

We encourage everyone to be safe and to be thoughtful of others during the celebration. Masks are required even if you are fully vaccinated, unless you are actively eating or drinking indoors and outside. You may have heard that the university is implementing a vaccine/negative test requirement for large events. While that requirement does not apply to our gathering because of its size, we encourage our entire community to get vaccinated and to be tested when appropriate as recommended by public health authorities.
