Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 at various locations across the province, one Air Canada flight and one West Jet flight. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.

Due to the significant rise in positive COVID-19 cases in our province, based on a decision made by the Medical Officers of Health, Public Health will only issue potential public exposure notifications in Nova Scotia for locations where Public Health recommends people self-isolate and get tested. This means we will not be issuing notifications for low risk locations at this time.

Regardless of whether or not you have COVID-19 symptoms, those present at the following locations on the named dates and times for at least 15 minutes 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.

Please Note: Due to the high volume of tests, Nova Scotia Health is experiencing delays in processing negative lab results, and delays issuing notifications. Please be reassured they are in progress; it is simply taking longer than usual. Those being tested are encouraged to sign up for email notification of negative test results. To be eligible, bring a provincial health card with you to your testing appointment. However, due to volumes, you may still experience a delay in receiving your result, which may take longer than 72 hours.

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.

Currently, anyone who traveled outside of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland and Labrador is expected to self-isolate alone for 14 days after arriving. If a person returning from non-essential travel outside of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland and Labrador is unable to isolate alone, then everyone in the home where they are isolating will have to self-isolate as well.

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 at novascotia.ca/coronavirus.
