COVID-19 Information

Umpqua Community College (UCC) is committed to protecting the health of our students, employees, and the community. The College actively gathers and shares information about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) with staff and students at all of its campus locations.

While global health experts continue to learn more about this virus, what is known is that viruses do not discriminate.

COVID-19 is not associated with any race, ethnicity, or nationality. It is vital that our community work to combat discrimination based on racial bias or appearances and to correct misinformation on the spot. Make sure you only share accurate, unbiased information, and speak up when you hear, see, or read misinformation or harassment.

Incidents of bias or harassment on campus can be reported to Student Services. UCC employees should report incidents to the Office of Human Resources.

Face Coverings on Campus

Please be advised that face coverings are mandatory on the UCC Campus in indoor public spaces and even in outdoor settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained at all times. The College is abiding by the guidance issued by the Governor of Oregon and Oregon Health Authority that went into effect on August 13, 2021: Governor Brown reinstates statewide masking mandate and August 27, 2021: Governor Kate Brown Announces Statewide Outdoor Mask Requirements.

As of November 23, 2021 Face coverings are not mandatory in outside settings. Face coverings are mandatory in “common or shared space,” which includes areas where individuals may interact such as a restroom, breakroom, hallway, elevator, lobby, classroom, large room with cubicles, meeting rooms, conference rooms, and any indoor area open to the public.  

Where face coverings are NOT required to be worn:

  • In a “private, individual workspace.” Defined as an indoor space within a public or private workplace used for work by one individual at a time that is enclosed on all sides with walls from floor to ceiling and with a closed door.
  • In their own residence.
  • In their own personal vehicle.
  • Is under five (5) years of age.
  • While eating or drinking.
  • Engaged in an activity that makes wearing a mask, face covering, or face shield not feasible, such as when taking a shower.
  • While sleeping.

Campus security personnel are monitoring the campus to ensure compliance with OSHA COVID-19 requirements.
