As we navigate through these difficult times, we remain committed to supporting you throughout your studies. Both on-campus and in the community, there are many support services and resources available during this time to support our students.
The health and safety of all members of the Carleton community is the university’s top priority. We all need to play our part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant to protect our family, friends and communities.
The fall 2022 and winter 2023 terms has seen a regular in-person schedule with the majority of course components being delivered in person.
The class schedule and registration course planning tool for fall 2022 and winter 20223 is now available in Carleton Central via Carleton360.
When looking at the course schedule, in-person sections will have a room displayed, and online sections will have “ONLINE” in the room column. Additional information regarding online delivery will also be displayed (e.g. asynchronous or synchronous). A glossary of the different online deliveries can be found on the Course Delivery Types website.
In line with current public health guidance, masking is strongly recommended as a way to protect yourself from COVID-19 – particularly in indoor settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained. In line with other health care facilities, Health Services and the Sports Medicine Clinic will continue to require masks. Masks are available to all faculty and staff and can be obtained from departmental administrators through eShop. Three-layer cloth masks have also been included in our student orientation kits.
Individual preferences regarding mask use will vary. Everyone is empowered to make their own decisions to help reduce personal risk, and we ask everyone to be understanding and respectful of people’s personal choices. Outside of our health care facilities, individuals cannot require colleagues or students to wear masks in classrooms or offices, except in very specific situations such as labs where masks were required prior to the pandemic. Please note that the university’s mandatory mask mandate may be reinstated at a future time, should public health indicators and guidelines change.
Vaccination remains the best protection against serious illness, hospitalization, long-term impacts from COVID-19 and associated potential disruptions to learning or work. As such, we strongly recommend that all members of the Carleton community get a full course of vaccination and stay up to date with their vaccinations, including receiving any additional doses as soon as they are eligible to do so.
Although proof of vaccination is not required to access campus or participate in in-person Carleton activities, it may become necessary to bring back proof of vaccination requirements on short notice if the situation and public health advice changes. All Carleton students, faculty and staff continue to be required to attest to their vaccination status and, if vaccinated, upload proof of vaccination and subsequent booster doses in cuScreen as soon as possible.
