EXPECTED COVID-19 REquirments for all students, chaperones and conductors
Proof of Vaccination Requirement for those 12 and older for designated university events: Attendees at designated university events and activities - as defined by the OSU Coronavirus Response Coordinator and in consultation with the local public health authority - will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within the prior three days. Examples include athletic events and select concerts and conferences.
Photo ID can be a valid driver's license, state-issued ID card, passport, or student ID.
Acceptable proof of a COVID-19 vaccination includes a CDC vaccination card, a photocopy of the card or a photo of the card on a mobile device, with accompanying proof of identification. Cardholders must be at least two weeks past receiving their first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the second dose in a two-dose series vaccine (e.g., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).
For those who cannot provide proof of vaccination, documentation of a negative test taken within three days of the event will also be accepted. The test must be a SARS-CoV-2 viral test (either nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT], including polymerase chain reaction [PCR], or antigen test) with Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Home tests will not be accepted.
A test result must be in the form of written documentation (paper or electronic copy). The documentation must include:
Type of test (indicating it was a NAAT or antigen test).
Entity issuing the result (e.g., laboratory, healthcare entity or telehealth service).
Specimen collection date. A negative test result must show the specimen was collected within the three days before the event to be attended. A positive test result for documentation of recovery from COVID-19 must show the specimen was collected within the three months before the event.
Accompanying proof of identification in the form of a driver’s license or other document that visibly identifies the person on the test result.
In compliance with Oregon’s statewide indoor face mask requirement that went into effect Aug. 13, guests aged five and older at university-designated events will be required to wear face coverings throughout the venue, including in seats, except when actively eating and drinking, regardless of vaccination status. An appropriate face-covering fully covers the nose and mouth, is not constructed of mesh or lace, and does not have openings, holes, valves, or vents. Children under age 12 do not need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test.
