The Government of Ontario has implemented a three-step plan to safely and gradually lift public health measures based on the ongoing progress of province-wide vaccination rates and improvements of key public health and health care indicators.

In discussion with the Carleton University Scenario Planning (CUSP) working group and the Faculty Deans, it was deemed preferable to delay our return to campus by one more week, so as to give everyone additional time to prepare. This additional delay will also allow for a better assessment of the impact of schools reopening on January 17. As such, barring another dramatic change in the trajectory of the pandemic, we will re-open our facilities (following public health regulations) and resume our in-person courses (as per the winter 2022 schedule) and activities on Monday, February 7, 2022.  

Employees should only come to campus to perform necessary work that cannot be conducted remotely until Friday, February 7,  2022. Research that cannot be performed from home can continue to proceed on campus following public health guidelines for indoor capacity limits. Beginning Monday, February 7, 2022, units in Phases 2 and 3 will resume in-person operations on campus similar to Fall 2021.
