Keeping Each Other Safe
Over the summer, we also updated a number of policies and processes in preparation for the fall term. The health and safety of all members of the Carleton community is the university’s top priority. We all have to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Staying home, maintaining physical distancing and practicing good hand hygiene remain the primary approaches to minimize the risk of virus transmission.
We recognize that part of the university experience is to gather with your friends and other students. However, we all have a responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect our loved ones. We encourage you to gather virtually with friends and take part in a variety of virtual programming. If you are visiting with friends, be Social Wise by keeping groups small, wearing a mask, maintaining physical distancing of two metres, isolating yourself when you are sick and exercising proper hand hygiene.
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.
- Before returning to campus, students must complete the COVID-19: Infection Prevention and Control Training on cuLearn.
- Building access is restricted to authorized personnel only, with the exception of the buildings and spaces that are designated as publicly accessible. Please visit the Building Updates webpagefor a full list of publicly accessible buildings and spaces, hours of operation and access protocols.
- Under Carleton’s updated Mask Policy, masks are also required in non-publicly accessible workplaces where a two-metre physical distance cannot be consistently maintained, or in common or shared spaces.
- If you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you are required to stay at home.
- If you are on campus and are feeling unwell, please leave campus immediately.
- Students who have been on campus and are experiencing symptoms potentially linked to COVID-19 are asked to self-report.
