Events and Gatherings

All on- and off- campus events planned between now and April 30 are being cancelled or postponed until a later date. No new bookings or plans for events hosted on our campuses will take place during this time. This applies to events where members of our external community are invited and to events that are taking place off-campus, at community locations. Decisions regarding future events will be made on a week- by week- basis. 

From the Government of Ontario's website:

Everyone in Ontario should be practicing physical/social distancing to reduce their exposure to other people. Everyone in Ontario should do their best to avoid close contact with people outside of their immediate families.

Close contact includes being within two (2) meters of another person. If you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 symptoms, you should begin to self-monitor for a period of 14 days. This means that, in addition to social distancing, you should track how you feel. You should take your temperature daily and log any other symptoms that develop (e.g., sore throat, new cough). You can share these records with your primary care provider over the phone if you seek assessment services.

Stay Home if You Are Ill

From the Government of Ontario's website:

If you start to feel symptoms of COVID-19: 

- Anyone who begins to feel unwell (fever, new cough or difficulty breathing) should return home and self-isolate immediately.
- People who are self-isolating should seek clinical assessment over the phone - either through Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000) or by calling their primary care provider's office. If you need additional assessment, your primary care provider or Telehealth will direct you to in-person care options.

If you need immediate medical attention you should call 911 and mention your travel history and symptoms.

Please do not visit an assessment centre unless you have been referred by a healthcare professional. Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency. 

Who should I contact for more information?

Brockville: Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit
Cornwall: Eastern Ontario Health Unit
