As Ottawa and the rest of the world continue to respond to this unprecedented time in history, the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health are looking to learn more about your thoughts, perceptions and understanding of current recommendations in place related to COVID-19.

The City and Ottawa Public Health are exploring how we can support Ottawa residents as businesses and services gradually reopen, while aligning with the Government of Ontario’s framework for reopening the Province.

In phase 2 we want to hear your thoughts about ongoing public health and safety measures, your priorities for easing restrictions in the City of Ottawa and ideas on how to continue to support local businesses. We also want to hear about your needs regarding information, resources and services Ottawa Public Health and the City provides.

During the first phase of COVID-19 engagement, we asked you about the changes you have made to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19, how easy it has been for you to receive and understand information from different levels of government, what kinds of supports you have accessed, your ideas on how to maintain physical distancing into the future and much more. The full report “COVID-19 What We Heard” is available here.

Please check back regularly as we will update this page to seek ongoing feedback as we continue to navigate next steps.

    We are now in Stage 2 of the gradual re-opening of businesses, services and public spaces. While the Province has started to ease some of the restrictions, there is still a risk of contracting or spreading the virus. Over 95 per cent of the population remains vulnerable to COVID-19. You can continue to reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some precautions:  

    • Stay at home if you are unwell or experiencing symptoms such as a cough, a headache, or a mild fever, until you feel better.
    • Practice physical distancing when in public by staying two metres or six feet apart. 
    • Wear a cloth mask or disposal mask when physical distancing is difficult.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 
    • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
    • Clean your phone and frequently touched surfaces regularly (e.g. counter tops, door handles, light switches) 
    • If you think you have COVID-19 or may have been exposed to the virus, go to an assessment centre or care clinic and get tested
