At Portland State, we are ready to adapt to the next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. As reflected in recent federal, state and local guidance, pandemic strategies are shifting from a public health response to a personal health response. This means that recommendations are provided to individuals based on their circumstances rather than mandating broad mitigation measures. PSU is committed to making these decisions as easy as possible for students and employees.
Our Vaccination Requirement Dashboard has been retired as of spring 2023 when the university ended its vaccine requirement for students and employees.
County, state, and national case dashboards tell the story of how COVID-19 impacts people by age, race, location, vaccination status, disease severity, and myriad other factors. For two and half years, PSU collected COVID-19 case information from students and employees. Given the rise of at-home testing, the decline in self-reporting, and recent direction from local public health organizations, PSU has stopped that practice.
