COVID-19 TESTING IS AVAILABLE AT SHAC
At this time, PSU is not requiring staff or students to have a negative COVID-19 test to visit campus. However, it is recommended that you verify and follow departmental guidelines. If you are exhibiting any COVID like symptoms please do not come to campus. If you have questions, call SHAC first at 725-2800 so you can speak to a nurse.
COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATE
SHAC is taking measures to obtain COVID-19 Vaccine. Vaccine distribution is controlled by the state and timelines are not clear at this point. When we have received the vaccine and are ready to distribute it we will provide additional updates.
If you fall into one of the eligible categories set by the state or want to receive eligibility updates, you can sign up by going to the Oregon COVID Vaccine website and follow the instructions.
COVID Tests for Travel:
If you are asymptomatic, have NOT had an exposure to COVID-19, and want a COVID test for travel please be aware of the following:
- PCR testing results are taking at least a week to get back at this time (it could become longer because of the increase in testing)
- Many clinics are running out of supplies so Rapid PCR testing for travel is not a priority
- The Rapid Antigen test cannot be used for travel
COVID-19 Reporting Form
Inform SHAC of COVID-19 positive test results or diagnosis to help PSU initiate centralized university level responses to protect our community. Please report if you've been to PSU within the past two weeks.
If you think you've been exposed to COVID-19, don't complete this form. Call SHAC at 503.725.2800.
