General Breaking News Graphic

Oregon State University plans to reopen its campuses for summer sessions four and five, as well as the entirety of fall term, as announced in an all-student email sent out on May 11 by Edward Feser, provost and executive vice president.

The pandemic resumption plan outlines three phases—initial partial reopening, gradual increase in on-site activity, and greater lifting of restrictions due to reliable treatment or prevention. The university has planned for multiple scenarios, dependent on the status of the virus.

In-person instruction and on-site activities will maintain appropriate distancing guidelines, and public health measures will be put in place to allow for a safe transition back to campus. 

This is a developing story, and will be updated as more information becomes available.
