As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are constantly re-evaluating our plans in light of new information. Being both prepared and flexible is essential to making the best possible decisions at the right time. Carleton University is continuing to closely follow the advice provided by Ottawa Public Health and other health agencies such as the Public Health Agency of Canada and Ontario Public Health.

Work has started on implementing the 10 recommendations of the recent report of the Carleton University Scenario Planning (CUSP) group.
