Nova Scotia Public Health has mandated that we practice social distancing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. This means:

  • staying two metres (six feet) away from others
  • only leaving your home when you need to
  • limiting non-essential gatherings to no more than five people
  • choosing only one person from your household to do all your shopping and errands
  • avoiding all non-essential travel

  • limit touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • don’t share items that may have saliva on them like utensils and bottles/glasses
  • clean surfaces like taps, doorknobs, and countertops often
