The good news is we will be able to offer in-person internships this summer on a case by case basis with the support of your organization. To offer in-person internships, or add in-person components to a primarily virtual internship, we will need to communicate health risks and office/lab protocols to students in advance, including:
1. Your organization’s COVID-19 protocols or Communicable Disease Plan (CDP). As an example, see Saturday Academy’s
CDP below or visit Oregon Health Authority for guidelines.
2. Your plan should include any specific COVID protocols that you and your immediate
office/lab follows in addition to any organizational policies, including what would happen
if either you or the intern needs to quarantine.
3. Interns will be required to review your organization's protocols and communicate any concerns in advance
before accepting an internship offer. Interns will then sign a waiver agreement that they
agree to protocols and understand potential risks.
We will continue to adapt to the situation in Oregon and support the safety of students as our top priority.
