NEWS RELEASE
NOVA SCOTIA HEALTH
*************************
Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 at various locations in the Central, Western and Northern Zones and three Air Canada flights. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.

Based on a decision made by the Medical Officers of Health, effective today, Public Health will only issue public potential exposure notifications in the Central Zone for locations where Public Health recommends people self-isolate and get tested. This means we will no longer be issuing notifications for low risk locations in Central Zone, such as retail or grocery stores. Given the risk of community transmission in the Central Zone, everyone should consider getting tested for COVID-19, not just those present at specific exposure locations. Public Health strongly encourages all Nova Scotians to get tested for COVID-19 and follow Public Health restrictions. We are increasing testing capacity to respond to the rising demand and plan to open an additional primary assessment centre this weekend at the Dartmouth Sportsplex.

Public Health takes this work very seriously. Containing and managing this disease – and protecting the health of Nova Scotians – is our priority and focus. Any decision is made carefully in consideration of the risk posed to the community. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support in slowing the spread of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia.

Anyone who worked at or visited the following locations on the specified dates and times should immediately self-isolate and visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you.

Regardless of whether or not you have COVID-19 symptoms, those present at the following locations on the named dates and times are required to self-isolate while waiting for their test result. If you get a negative result, you do not need to keep self-isolating. If you get a positive result, you will be contacted by Public Health about what to do next.
