Holiday Farm Fire Update

Lane County has issued a number of evacuation orders for the Thurston and Walterville areas north and south of the McKenzie River. There are currently no orders for the cities of Eugene or Springfield.

If evacuation orders were to be issued for near-campus areas, the university would notify students with its UO Alert text notification system (alerts start with “UO Alert” and come from 89361). Additionally, Lane County has a reverse 911 system that should ping phones within the geographic or adjacent boundaries that are subject to any evacuation orders. You may be receiving these County evacuation messages already even if you live outside of the evacuation zones.

The air quality in the metro area is currently listed as “very unhealthy” due to wildfire smoke. Residents should stay indoors if possible. We will continue to the monitor the situation and will provide updates as needed.

Employee Wildfire Evacuation Resources

If you have been impacted by wildfire evacuation orders, the University of Oregon provides the following resources for UO employees and students:

If you need additional assistance, please complete the employee wildfire evacuation resources 2020 form and someone from Human Resources will reach out to you.


Lane County Evacuation Information

The university is coordinating with Lane County and currently working on what resources we can provide to our students, faculty, and staff who may be impacted by evacuation orders.

If evacuation orders were to be issued near campus areas, the university would use our UO Alert text notification system. It would provide direction on where to go. Additionally, the county has a reverse 911 system that should ping phones within the geographic boundaries (or adjacent) that are subject to the evacuation orders.

UO Alert Portland: Stay Home, Save Lives


Dear University of Oregon community,

We are writing to provide the latest update on the University of Oregon’s response to the coronavirus. Yesterday, Gov. Kate Brown issued an update to the Executive Order on school closures throughout the state as part of the continued effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. This new order calls for an extension of school closures through the current academic term. To adhere to this order, the University of Oregon will remain closed to the public operating on a modified status until at least the end of the spring term.

All Oregon residents should continue to stay home and practice social distancing. With the exception of certain pre-approved on-campus activities, members of the university community are advised to stay home and, when you must go out, practice social distancing to minimize risk and the unintentional spread of the coronavirus. While the UO is in modified operations, campus security officials have put new temporary restrictions on access to UO buildings. Additional information for faculty and staff about requesting access is available in the University Operations FAQs.
