COVID-19 Response

Protecting the health and wellbeing of our fellow Drovers has never been more critical. Since the onset of the pandemic, the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma has aligned its guidance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with consideration to Oklahoma state law.

As we continue navigating COVID-19, please review the CDC guidelines and make the best decision for your personal health. Protect yourself and our community from the spread of COVID-19 with the right tools to keep us all enjoying the semester and events we are looking forward to: 

Vaccines and Boosters


  • If you are feeling ill, you can get tested for COVID-19 at most local pharmacies, including Walgreens, CVS and Walmart and/or health clinincs. 
  • If you test postitive for COVID-19, please report your positive result to Associate Vice President for Student Services and Human Resources Nancy Hughes


  • Masking is welcome on the Science & Arts campus. People may choose to mask at any time or any purpose.
  • If you choose to wear a mask, you are encouraged to wear a disposable surgical mask or a KN-95 mask. Your mask should fit well and cover your nose and mouth. 

As we transition toward the endemic phase of the pandemic, Science & Arts has paused updates to its COVID-19 dashboard. The university will continue to monitor and respond to transmission levels on our campus and follow CDC recommendations, and will resume dashboard updates as needed.
