Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus Update

January 10, 2022

The meteoric rise of Omicron is just getting started. Both the Trudeau and Ford governments announced a series of measures to slow the spread of this virus. As it has since March 2020, the University of Ottawa will continue to do what needs to be done to protect our students, professors, and support staff, and all members of our communities.
