Link Oregon’s Response to COVID-19

Link Oregon continues to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously; remains vigilant in protecting our employees, members, and partners; and will continue to be of service to our members. Our sincere concern goes out to those affected directly.

We stand ready to help deliver connectivity as needed, so please don’t hesitate to contact us should you experience challenges.  

In response to this evolving situation, the Link Oregon team continues to: 

  • Track our member networks’ traffic. You can follow real-time traffic on member networks, plus access a new dashboard just for Oregon K-12 and education service district (ESD) traffic
  • Stay in close contact with our member community, vendor partners, government officials, Tribes, and affiliates to ensure clear communication and uninterrupted service
  • Enhance the throughput and resiliency of our backbone by adding capacity
  • Carefully evaluate the efficacy of professional travel and respond in a manner that keeps our staff, our members, and our partners safe
  • Work remotely and meet regularly online
  • Stand ready to assist in re-architecting your IT environment and connectivity to meet changing business needs

We are closely following: 

  • Guidelines set out by recognized local, national, and global public health organizations and authorities (see the column on the right for links)
  • Protocols established by our founding entities: OHSU, Oregon State University, Portland State University, University of Oregon, and the State of Oregon Enterprise Information Services (EIS)
  • Guidance of peer national and regional research and education networks.
