Staying Healthy on Campus

Please join us in taking these measures to keep our campus communities healthy and safe in this season.

Stay on campus. Stay safe.

The best way to keep George Fox University safe is for residential students to remain on campus with the exception of essential travel, off-campus jobs, and visiting outdoor locations with your close circle of friends (wear a mask at all times, even in a car!). For this period, we encourage you to “bubble up.” By staying on campus and purposefully keeping our social circles (or “bubbles”) smaller eating together and studying together over longer amounts of time, but with fewer people we will limit exposure to ourselves and our community.

Self screen before coming to campus

Please download the CampusClear app to use for your required daily COVID symptom screen. Students and employees can download the app (iPhone version or Android version), which will help us all monitor our health. Protection of your personal health information is a top priority, and all data will be treated in a secure and confidential manner.
