Vaccine Mandate Compliance

OSU requires all employees and students who work, learn or engage with others in-person as part of their job duties to show proof of initial COVID-19 vaccinations, though exceptions are allowed when based on medical or disability reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs.

Please upload your proof of vaccination to Student Health Services’ secure Patient Portal.

Vaccine access: OSU will continue to support the regional distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in Corvallis, Bend and other locations throughout the state.

Supervisor Tips & Resources

 A supervisor cannot require an employee to leave based on their perception of what the employee is experiencing in terms of symptoms. In this instance, the supervisor should remind the employee experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to refrain from engaging in work activity associated with their OSU employment. Supervisors should also remind employees of leave options available to them. Supervisor support and further situational guidance is available through a Senior Employee and Labor Relations Officer.

If an employee is sick, it is essential that supervisors express concern for the employee’s well-being and advise the employee to stay home and isolate. Supervisors should advise the employee to contact by phone their primary care provider with any medical concerns, or if they are seriously ill, contact by phone an emergency medical care provider. Employees should get tested for COVID-19 if they have symptoms.

If the employee does not have a primary care health care provider, they can contact the local county health department in the community in which they reside for referrals. Employees who have been on-site at an OSU location and have tested positive for COVID-19 are required to inform their supervisor.

Vaccines required by OSU may be done during work hours with pre-arrangement through the employee’s supervisor.
