Carleton University suspended vaccination & masking requirements for participation in in-person Carleton activities in May/June 2022. The evolution of Covid-19 and public health conditions are difficult to predict, so these decisions were contingent on current conditions and directions continuing. Masking and other safety measures may be reinstated at a later time. We recommend use of masks indoors when physical distance cannot be maintained.
