At-Home COVID-19 Tests 

COVID-19 at-home tests are one of many risk-reduction measures, along with vaccination, masking, and physical distancing, that protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading COVID-19.

Operational Guidance

A global pandemic can be an ever-changing situation. UCO continuously monitors public health and its impact on campus, as well as on the city, state, national and global levels. The university is dedicated to remaining flexible in order to further the health and safety of its community members.

The university will use a data-informed approach to inform decision making during any ongoing pandemic. This includes reviewing a continuum of general states of campus operation coupled with specific possible interventions, all informed by relevant circumstances and data.

Through the established data-informed approach, on-campus operations will follow one of five levels.

  • Level 1: Campus Open with High Density – standard campus operations
  • Level 2: Campus Open with Moderate Density
  • Level 3: Campus open with Low Density
  • Level 4: Campus Open to Essential Personnel and Individuals Only
  • Level 5: Campus Closed

This framework creates a continuum for levels of campus operations based on the varying status of population density and presumes the continuation of other risk-mitigation strategies and efforts.

The university is currently operating at Level 1.
