Preparation for emergency temporary standard on COVID-19 vaccination and testing

OLLU is monitoring legal action around the OSHA emergency temporary standard on COVID-19 vaccination and testing. Although the standard has been halted by the courts, the university is taking actions to be prepared to comply with the standard if the courts allow it to go into effect by the original Jan. 4, 2022 deadline.

If the current stay is lifted by the courts, OLLU employees will need to upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination (if they have not already done so). Individuals who do not provide proof of vaccination or receive an appropriate exemption will be required to submit results from a COVID-19 test each week at their own expense.

Until further notice, OLLU will continue to conduct at university expense regular testing of employees who have not provided proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

As always, OLLU will monitor the communities served by the university and make changes to COVID-19 protocols as necessary.
