COVID-19 Resources

Pacific University is committed to the wellbeing of our students and employees, as well as our community. As a university with a specialty in healthcare, we are dedicated to ensuring the continued educational progress and success of our students. However, we also believe it is critical that we participate in preventing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic to avoid overloading our hospital systems.

Pacific University is actively monitoring this rapidly evolving public health issue, building on established emergency preparedness and response procedures, and compiling information and support resources for our university community. Find additional information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

In conjunction with recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority and guidelines from Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, we will alter our course delivery and upcoming events to limit large gatherings and encourage social distancing. We also are encouraging residential students to head home if possible. These pages will continue to be the official source of updates from Pacific.

Prevention Tips from the CDC

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
