Carleton University along with all post-secondary institutions in Ontario, will be requiring mandatory vaccination against COVID-19 for anyone wishing to access our athletics facilities for any amount of time, for any reason – indoors or outdoors. As a result, all individuals that are eligible under Ottawa Public Health’s vaccination age guidelines (12 years of age or older as of December 31, 2021) must attest to receiving their first dose vaccine by September 8, 2021, and their second dose no later than October 15, 2021.
All those participating in in-person activities at Carleton will be required to upload their proof of vaccination through cuScreen by the deadlines referenced above. More information on how to set up a cuScreen account and to provide proof of vaccination will be communicated at a later date. Any false information or misrepresentation on the mandatory attestation form is a violation of university policy that will be taken very seriously.
Any individual who cannot be vaccinated on medical grounds or other protected grounds recognized by the Ontario Human Rights Code can request an exemption.
Unvaccinated individuals without an approved permitted exemption will not be able to enter any Athletics Facility.
