COVID-19 Testing or Vaccination Required for Return to Student Housing in January 2022 

In the interest of protecting our community from this highly transmissible disease, we are requiring all residential students moving back into campus housing in January to provide us ONE of the following:

  • Proof of at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine (prior to Dec. 20)

    1. Update your status in MyGeorgeFox


  • Proof of a negative result for a COVID-19 test taken on or after Monday, Jan. 3

    1. Email a photo of your negative test result to University Housing prior to move in. We accept tests administered by a medical professional as well as at-home tests. If you are submitting an at-home test, you must provide a photo ID (e.g. George Fox ID) in the photo. You should provide the date that the test was taken in your email.


  • Proof of a positive test result for COVID-19 taken between July 1, 2021 and Dec. 30, 2021. 

    1. Email photo of your test result to University Housing prior to move in.

Reduce close contacts January 3-9

We are asking students to voluntarily self-quarantine for the week prior to the start of classes. Reduce the number of close contacts to as few people as possible. This will reduce risk of exposure to the virus and a delay in your return to campus. 

Booster vaccine shots available

Students can schedule a free COVID-19 vaccine booster shot at the Health and Counseling Center by email or phone (503-554-2340). You can also do this at many other locations
