Carleton has paused its mandatory mask mandate as of June 25, 2022.  Even though masks will no longer be mandatory, we continue to strongly recommend masking when indoors, particularly if physical distancing cannot be maintained.

Please note that as health care facilities, Health and Counselling Services and the Sports Medicine Clinic will continue to require masks at this time.

As more public health measures are lifted, it is important to remember that COVID is still present in Ottawa. You can reduce your risk by:

  • Stay home if sick and report symptoms
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer
  • Keep up-to-date with vaccinations
  • Wear a mask (recommended)
  • Maintain physical distancing where possible

In addition, please continue to follow Ottawa Public HealthPublic Health Ontario, the Government of Ontario, and the Public Health Agency of Canada for the latest information about COVID-19 and recommendations for prevention.
