Please note:
Do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to do so. Please book an appointment online or call 811 and do not go to a pop-up rapid testing location.  

Nova Scotians also have the option to access their results online here. To be eligible to receive results online, by email or by auto call, you need to bring a provincial health card or student ID with you to your testing appointment. It can take up to 72 hours to receive or access test results. It is not unusual for two or more family members to be tested at the same time and receive results at different times.  

Currently, anyone who is travelling into Nova Scotia from outside of Atlantic Canada must follow self-isolation instructions based on vaccination status. View details here.   

If you have not booked your vaccine appointment, please visit novascotia.ca/coronavirus/book-your-vaccination-appointment or call 1-833-797-7772.  

When Nova Scotia Health Public Health makes a public notification it is not in any way a reflection on the behaviour or activities of those named in the notification.  

All Nova Scotians are advised to continue monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms and are urged to follow Public Health guidelines on how to access care. Up to date information about COVID-19 is available here.
