Pre-screening before you come to Carleton University

On the day of your planned visit to Carleton, please take a moment to review these pre-screening questions. When you arrive at CUAG, we will review the questions with you again.

  1. Do you have any new or worsening COVID-like symptoms or signs, as described here: a) fever or chills; b) difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; c) sore throat or trouble swallowing; d) runny / stuffy nose, or nasal congestion; d) decreased or loss of smell or taste; e) nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or abdominal pain; f) not feeling well, extreme tiredness, sore muscles.
  2. Have you had close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19?
  3. Have you travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days?

If you have symptoms potentially linked to COVID-19 or have come into contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 you should contact Telehealth Ontario and follow their instructions. If you have been on the Carleton campus in the 14 days prior to the onset of symptoms potentially linked to COVID-19, have had a positive COVID-19 test result, or have been advised that you are to self-isolate, you are required to advise Carleton University.

Admission and parking

Accessing the St. Patrick’s Building

Carleton’s tunnel system is closed to the public.
Please enter / exit the gallery through the main outdoor entrance to the building.
If you are unable to use the stairs, please pre-book a visit through Eventbrite and then call us at (613) 520-2120. We’ll make sure you can access the gallery safely.

Keeping you safe

We’ve created a second reception desk on the gallery’s mezzanine level; this is where you’ll be greeted and where contactless registration takes place.
Our reception desks are fronted in Plexiglas.
There is plenty of hand sanitizer on site.
We’re cleaning high-touch surfaces throughout the day.
We’ve created a one-way traffic flow in the gallery, to maintain social distancing.

When you’re at the gallery, please:

Wear a mask at all times. We have free disposable masks for you to use.
Sanitize your hands when you come in.
Keep your coat and bag with you, as the cloakroom is closed.
Maintain a two-metre distance from others and follow the directional arrows.
If you are unable to use the stairs, please use the elevator in the building lobby to navigate between floors. The elevator is open to one person at a time.

Staying in touch (while social distancing!)

We’re not currently hosting any in-person events. You’ll be happy know that our free public programming is continuing, online. Please join our e-list to receive updates and get involved.

Questions or comments?

We want to make sure your experience is as safe and welcoming as possible. If you have any questions, or feedback on how we can improve, please email Sandra Dyck.

An important note

Visiting any public space where people come together, like Carleton University Art Gallery, produces a risk of exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Help keep each other healthy by following health and safety guidelines, maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask or face covering during your visit. By being in public spaces and entering Carleton University Art Gallery you voluntarily assume these risks.
