New COVID-19 Screening Requirement for Building Access

Under Orders from the Government of Ontario and guidance from Public Health Ontario and Ottawa Public Health, Carleton University is required to implement COVID-19 screening for all employees (including faculty, contract instructors, staff and teaching/research assistants), students, and visitors.

Effective immediately, the short COVID-19 screening form must be completed each day you plan to enter a Carleton University building. An email confirmation of your submission will be sent to your Carleton email account.

Students living off-campus are strongly advised not to come to campus unless it is essential, or you have made the appropriate arrangements to access limited facilities. Staying home, maintaining physical distancing and practicing good hand hygiene remain the primary approaches to minimize the risk of virus transmission. If you do come to campus, and you are accessing a building that is not publicly accessible, you must follow the existing access protocols and ensure that you have completed the training on cuLearn.

Students living in residence must continue to complete the COVID-19 self-assessment daily and follow the Department of Housing and Residence Life’s symptom reporting process. The COVID-19 screening form must be completed if you are accessing a building that is not your residence building or Residence Commons.

If you have been on campus in the 14 days prior to the onset of symptoms potentially linked to COVID-19, have had a positive COVID-19 test result or have been advised that you are to self-isolate (including under the Class Section 22 order), you are required to submit a report.
