Fan Update - Vaccinations No Longer Required for OUTDOOR Oregon Athletics Events

Feb 25, 2022

Thank you for your support of Oregon Athletics, and thank you so much for your patience and understanding as the University works with local and state health authorities to ensure the safest environment possible for our home athletic events this year. The health and safety of our fans, student-athletes, and staff is always our top priority, and the safety protocols in place are as directed by local public health authorities as well as the University of Oregon Incident Management Team.
As of Friday, Feb. 25, there will no longer be a requirement for fans attending outdoor University of Oregon athletics events to provide either proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test.
This is for outdoor events only. Fans attending UO indoor athletics events will still be required to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test. This protocol will continue to be evaluated on a weekly basis in consultation with — and with direction from — local public health authorities and the UO Incident Management Team.
Here are the updated safety protocols in place for University of Oregon events:
Face Coverings
Face coverings are not required in any Oregon Athletics outdoor venues. The mask mandate for all guests ages 5 and over remains in effect for all indoor spaces in University of Oregon venues, per Oregon Health Authority and the University of Oregon Incident Management Team.
Vaccination Policy for INDOOR Events
All fans ages 12 and older attending games at any University of Oregon indoor sporting event will need to show proof of vaccination, including a CDC-issued Vaccination Record Card (or photo of the card) and corresponding identification, to gain entry. This policy is no longer in effect for outdoor events.
For those 12 and older who cannot provide proof of vaccination, documentation of a negative test taken within three days of the event will also be accepted. Please visit the following link from the University of Oregon Incident Management Team for details on how to meet this requirement.

Clear Bag Policy
The clear bag policy at all athletic venues remains in effect. As a reminder, fans may bring in one clear bag no larger than 12" x 6" x 12" or a one-gallon plastic storage bag. Fans are limited to one clear bag per person, along with a small clutch or purse for privacy.
As many other businesses are experiencing, supply chain issues may necessitate limited concession stands and menus. Concessions will be cashless at all athletics events this year. Accepted payment methods include VISA, Mastercard and Discover. Cans, bottles, coolers or other food/beverage containers and their contents are prohibited at Matthew Knight Arena. Empty water bottles may be brought into the arena and filled once inside.
Fans may continue to bring prepackaged food and sealed, non-alcoholic, non-glass beverage containers into all University of Oregon outdoor athletics venues.
Matthew Knight Arena Shuttles - Basketball
Complimentary shuttles for Men's & Women's Basketball will only be offered from Autzen Stadium this season. The shuttle will start 90 minutes prior to the scheduled tipoff and will run as needed. Shuttles will resume running at the end of each game back to Autzen Stadium.
As a reminder, the additional health and safety protocols detailed above will be evaluated on a weekly basis and are subject to change, at the direction of the University of Oregon  Incident Management Team and local public health authorities. Fans will be notified immediately when adjustments are made to any of these health and safety protocols.
We appreciate your commitment to prioritizing safety in our venues, and we are grateful for all of your support of our Oregon student-athletes. Go Ducks!
