Our highest priority is the health and welfare of the Carleton community and our store staff. As we continue to monitor the global concerns about COVID-19, our team is responding to changing needs as they arise and adjusting store operations as required.

  • The Bookstore is taking steps to keep the environment safe and healthy by following the city, province and government public health protocols as guided by  Ottawa Public Health, the Ontario Ministry of Health or the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the World Health Organization (WHO). This includes increased cleaning of the store, frequent washing of hands and non-essential staff not coming to work. The Store Managers are being provided Coronavirus awareness information, prevention and resource tips, and ongoing updates as conditions change.

As we continue to monitor the ever changing COVID-19 situation, updates will be provided. Please refer to COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below for additional information:
