Western Oregon University will use the key public health tools known as isolation and quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the campus community. In preparation for the fall 2020 quarter, this protocol is a detailed outline of how we will care for students who are presumed to have COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 based on a positive test result and require isolation as well as for students who have been exposed to COVID-19 and require quarantine.
Should you need to utilize the Quarantine/Isolation spaces that we have available on campus, please know that we have resources for you. See:
