Important Information

  • Confirmed positive test results and recoveries of DOC employees are self-reported per the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA).
  • The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) reports on its website de-identified aggregate data concerning the number of employees who die as a result of COVID-19 infection when this information is made available to DOC by an employee's family or other authorized representative. DOC has a duty to protect the personal health information of its employees. Therefore, DOC will not list on its website or otherwise disclose the name, work location, job title or position, or any other data that may lead to identification of its employees. 
  • Please note: "Total AIC Tests" category includes inconclusive results which are not listed in other categories.

Medical Isolation

Medical isolation refers to confining a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case. Ideally, to a single cell with solid walls and a solid door that closes, to prevent contact with others and to reduce the risk of transmission. Medical isolation ends when the individual meets pre-established clinical and/or testing criteria for release from isolation, in consultation with clinical providers and public health officials. In this context, isolation does NOT refer to punitive isolation for behavioral infractions within the custodial setting.


Quarantine refers to confining individuals who have had close contact with a COVID-19 case to determine whether they develop symptoms of the disease. Quarantine for COVID-19 lasts for a period of 14 days. Ideally, each quarantined individual would be quarantined in a single cell with solid walls and a solid door that closes. If symptoms develop during the 14-day period, the AIC will be placed under medical isolation and evaluated for COVID-19. If symptoms do not develop, movement restrictions can be lifted, and the individual can return to their previous residency status within the facility.

Tier Status

The tiered prevention plan and protocol was created by the Agency Operation Center (AOC) in conjunction with Health Services. Tier levels are briefly explained on this page. For more detailed information, please visit the ODOC COVID-19 Infection Prevention Plan & Testing Protocol PDF document.

Institution Tiers

Tier 1 – Institutions without known COVID-19

Tier 2 * – Institutions with confirmed COVID-19 (AIC and/or Employee) originating from the institution

Tier 3 * – Institutions with confirmed COVID-19 and expanded testing of those with direct contact & all symptomatic AICs

Tier 4 * – Entire institution quarantined for 14 days

* All AIC transfers coordinated through DOC's Agency Operations Center for institutions designated Tier 2 through Tier 4.

Please note: Facilities who provide 24/7 medical care, and who house positive COVID-19 AICs without an originating COVID-19 case, will be considered Tier 2.
