What OU's COVID-19 risk levels mean for you

Ohio University’s COVID-19 protocols directly correspond to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but what does that mean for students, faculty and staff?

The CDC outlines three different levels for indicating the spread of coronavirus: low, medium and high. 

Low (Green): Masks are optional on campus.

Medium (Yellow): Masks are recommended during scheduled class and class-related activities in classrooms, laboratories, studios, clinical settings, other learning spaces and the Child Development Center.

High (Orange): Masks are strongly recommended during scheduled class and class-related activities in classrooms, laboratories, studios, clinical settings, other learning spaces and the Child Development Center.

Masks may still be required in clinical healthcare facilities and COVID-19 testing facilities.

For areas that have fewer than 200 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people over a seven day period: 

  • Low = Less than 10 people hospitalized  
  • Medium = Between 10 and 19 people hospitalized
  • High = 20 or more people hospitalized

For areas that have more than 200 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people over a seven day period: 

  • Medium = Less than 10 people hospitalized  

  • High = More than 10 people hospitalized
