Be Wild for our Health

Linfield and COVID-19

Linfield University has had a successful fall 2020 because of our community’s uncommon resilience, creativity and drive. You wore your masks, washed your hands, adapted and learned. In the midst of it all, classes continued, social gatherings continued, the performing arts continued. We continued. And we will continue on this spring because of our ongoing collective efforts. Check out the following pages for more information on Linfield's COVID-19 response.


Linfield University’s return-to-campus protocols were developed in collaboration with and based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Oregon Health Authority, local public health officials in Yamhill and Multnomah counties and the State of Oregon’s Higher Educating Coordinating Commission.
