COVID-19 protocol

101 week is a mix of in-person, virtual and hybrid events. Masks and physical distancing are mandatory for all in-person events. All participants must comply with the University of Ottawa’s COVID-19 policy for all events that are hosted on campus.

Participants are prohibited from attending on-campus events unless they are compliant with the University of Ottawa’s policy with respect to vaccinations and have signed the waiver included in their package.

The UOSU cannot prevent the risks posed by COVID-19. Participants who chose to attend in-person events assume all risks associated with in-person events, including the possibility of contracting COVID-19.
