Covid 19 and Spring Term 2022

School of Public Health graduate students are required to document compliance with COVID-19 vaccine policies at both OHSU and PSU – you must do this separately for each university. More information below. 

NOTE: PSU’s vaccination policy will change soon to require booster shots for those who are eligible. The requirement will take some time to finalize, and we’ll share your next steps as soon as we can. In the meantime, we urge you to get a booster as soon as you are eligible


Effective Spring 2022, masks are no longer required in classrooms, offices, and most other public and private indoor spaces at either university.  A limited number of settings still require masks – please see this page for a list of clinical and other spaces across the universities where masks are still required. In all buildings and classrooms at both universities, however, anyone who prefers to wear a mask is welcome and encouraged to do so.

Though the mask mandate has ended, some School of Public Health courses originally planned for in-person delivery will meet either remotely, or in a hybrid remote/in-person format instead. Be sure to check the SPH course schedule for your courses’ delivery mode.

If your course is listed as “hybrid”: Hybrid courses offer the opportunity for reduced face-to-face (in person) contact. Some instructors may choose to meet remotely, at the originally scheduled meeting times, for the initial week(s) of the term, then transition to increased in-person, on-campus delivery. The days and times for class meeting times will not change, and your instructor will contact you to let you know their plan for hybrid instruction and transition to in-person meetings.
