Nova Scotia Public Health has mandated that we practice social distancing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. To protect yourself and others you can:

  • wear a non-medical mask in most indoor public places, including retail business, places of worship and faith gatherings, places for cultural or entertainment activities, places for sports and recreational activities and public transportation
  • get tested regularly, even if you don’t have symptoms
  • stay 2 metres (6 feet) away from other people as much as possible, unless you’re in your close social group of 10
  • keep your close social group small and consistent, as much as possible
  • make informed choices about who and how to interact with each other (consider age, occupation and health conditions)
  • make sure you follow social distancing guidelines for the gathering limit, businesses, organizations and workplaces
  • stay home if you feel sick, follow provincial testing protocols if showing symptoms of COVID-19, and self-isolate if required.
