Updates regarding COVID-19

The Faculty of Medicine is committed to sharing information with our community on emerging issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Update: December 1, 2022

Existing masking requirements remain in effect for the Faculty of Medicine, given our proximity to hospitals where mask mandates remain in effect and the fact that many members of our community work directly with patients receiving care.

Masks are still required indoors at university facilities on the Alta Vista campus, including Roger Guindon Hall (RGN), 600 Peter Morand and 850 Peter Morand. Masks will continue to be made available at these locations.

Additionally, masking is highly recommended for all those travelling to and from the Alta Vista campus on the uOttawa shuttle. Masks are available on board.

We thank you for your continued patience and support.
