NEW: Students are no longer required to notify OSU if they have tested positive for COVID-19. Employees, including student employees, must notify their supervisor if they have been onsite in the previous 10 days. See Positive Case Notification steps.

Supporting students

We are here to serve the students and tailor our services to their individual and population-level needs.

If you would like to speak with our Nurse Advice Line to discuss your symptoms, call 541-737-2724 (during regular office hours) or 541-737-9355 (after-hours calls only). Resources are available 24 hours a day!

IMPORTANT: Anyone with viral symptoms, sinus pressure and pain, sore throat, cough or any combination of these should self-isolate immediately and be tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible. For everyone's safety, assume these symptoms could be COVID-19 until you have a negative test. Even if you have recovered previously from COVID-19, you may still need testing. Please contact SHS to speak with one of our advice nurses in this case.

COVID-19 Testing

  • Students with mild symptoms who do not wish to speak with a nurse or medical provider may call SHS directly at 541-737-9355 to schedule an antigen test at the SHS lab testing tent.
  • Students who feel unwell or have a high fever, severe cough, chest pain or severe sore throat should contact SHS at the same number above to speak with our advice nurse and arrange testing and a visit with one of our providers.
  • Students who have no symptoms but would simply like a test may use one of the self-test kits available at SHS and other sites on campus (while supplies last) or may wish to schedule an appointment with Willamette Valley Toxicology Lab in downtown Corvallis for PCR testing. Testing appointments for Willamette Valley Toxicology can be made online.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Immunizations offer safe, effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. This is especially true for students living in group housing on or off campus. By reducing cases and outbreaks of significant infectious diseases, OSU’s required immunizations help students stay in class and achieve their academic goals.

Questions? Call the Immunization Helpline at 541-737-7573 or send us an email.
