Current public health measures
Ottawa Public Health is urging residents to stick to outdoor gatherings this weekend, if possible.
“If heading indoors, keep gatherings small, open windows, maintain distance from others and wear a mask,” it advises. “And stay home if you’re sick.“
People with symptoms who test negative on a rapid antigen test should test again within 24 to 48 hours.
Some vaccine clinics have changes to hours over the long weekend.
Ontario extended mask mandates in hospitals, long-term care homes, on transit and other high-risk settings until June 11.
How to get vaccinated
Fourth doses of COVID-19 vaccines are available to Ontario residents aged 60 and over as well as First Nation, Inuit and Métis people and household members aged 18 and up.
Ottawa Public Health community clinics and after-school clinics are open for shots for people eligible for a first dose, second dose or booster dose.
Where to get tested for COVID-19 in Ottawa
Ontarians eligible for lab testing and assessment for antiviral treatment include residents 70 and older, 60 and older with fewer than three vaccine doses and 18 and older who and immunocompromised or with fewer than three doses and at least one risk factor such as a chronic medical condition.
Molecular testing in the province has been prioritized for people at increased risk and those living or working in high-risk settings.
