Step 1: Contactless services inside most open branches

17/06/2021

There are contactless services inside most of our 31 open branches, with strict capacity limits in place, as of June 14, 2021, except at Metcalfe Village, Orléans and Rosemount. This means:

  • Pick up holds and check them out at self-checkout stations.
  • Return borrowed items to book drops anytime.
  • Access to PCs, Chromebooks, and printing, where these are available.
  • No other services: no browsing, no washroom access.
  • Mask-wearing remains mandatory inside, and outside in line.

Dr. Frank Knoefel is a Physician at the Bruyère Memory Program in Ottawa and Senior Investigator at the Bruyère Research Institute.  His research interests are focused on the use of sensors to facilitate Aging in Place.  After spending many years working on bed-based sensors to monitor physical well-being, such as transfers out of bed and breathing, Frank’s work is now focused more on cognition.
