Regional COVID-19 Updates: February 22, 2021

COVID-19 is still prevalent in our community, across Ontario, Canada and around the world. We must continue to be vigilant and continue to take all of the necessary measures to limit the spread of the virus. This does not mean we can relax or develop COVID fatigue. In order to protect yourself, your immediate household and others in the Ottawa community, we all need to do our part and continue to be COVIDWise.

Carleton continues to strongly discourage personal international travel. We strongly encourage you to review the Government of Canada’s travel information website and contact the International Student Services Office prior to making any international travel arrangements and remind you that you will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon re-entry into Canada.

Effective Monday, February 22, 2021:

  • The Ottawa Public Health region, including Carleton University, is currently in regional level Restrict – Orange.
  • Additionally, eleven (11) regions in the province are in Control – Red and one (1) other is in Lockdown – Grey.
  • Three (3) more regions will remain under shutdown measures and the Stay-at-Home order will continue to apply until at least Monday, March 8, 2021.

If you do travel or if you work in the community, it’s important that you continue to self-monitor for symptoms and follow all public health guidelines. If traveling across Canada, you should verify restrictions and exemptions for your province or territory to and note that this information is subject to change. While at home, you are reminded to continue to wear a mask and keep six feet (two metres) of distance between yourself and anyone who is not in your social circle. You may also want to download Canada’s COVID Alert app.

We also urge you to have honest conversations with your roommates and to set clear social bubbles. Having these important conversations with your immediate household will continue to help stop the spread of the virus.

We wish you safety and good healthy as we all continue to work to reduce the spread of COVID-19 to ensure the safety of all members of the Carleton and Ottawa communities. We also encourage you to remember to take some time to ensure you’re prioritizing your mental and physical healthy by eating healthy, remaining active and getting plenty of rest.
