To All Members of the Carleton Community,

Key messages:

  • Ontario is moving into the shutdown zone of public health measures
  • Changes to on-campus operations
  • Reminder of on-campus mitigation measures and procedures

The Province of Ontario will move into the shutdown zone of public health measures for 28 days beginning Saturday, April 3, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. While under the shutdown, everyone is required to limit contact to your household (the people you live with). Everyone should stay home and only go out for essential or necessary reasons. At Carleton, all employees are expected to continue to work remotely unless they are required to be on campus to perform work that is necessary to maintain business operations.

Additionally, Carleton is implementing the following measures:

  • The closure of all Athletics facilities until further notice.
  • The closure of the library building to students and faculty until further notice. Online services and curbside pickup will remain available.
  • The Bookstore will have its in-store capacity reduced, and curbside pickup will continue to be an option for patrons.
  • Campus Card and U-Pass services will be available at reduced hours of operation.
  • The suspension of all in-person Carleton conferences, events and activities until further notice.
  • All on-campus dining locations will operate as takeout only.
  • Residence will remain open with increased mitigation measures. Students living in residence will receive a separate email with additional information.

At Carleton, pre-approved on-campus research that cannot be done remotely can continue. Some non-essential faculty and staff can continue to access their personal offices on campus if necessary and with the appropriate approval. If you are required to come to campus to perform necessary work that cannot be done remotely, you must complete the COVID-19 Daily Campus Access & Screening Form each day you plan to come to campus and enter a university building. You must also continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing from others.

More information regarding how the Government of Ontario’s zones and restrictions affect Carleton University can be found on our response framework website.

Thank you for all that you are doing to help limit the spread of COVID-19 within our community.

COVID-19 Lead on behalf of the COVID-19 Steering Committee
