Nova Scotia is gradually easing restrictions. The reopening plan takes a phased approach based on ongoing epidemiology and hospitalizations.
During phase 3, gathering limits, social distancing and mask restrictions are lifted.
The 3-phase reopening plan outlines how restrictions will ease while protecting the healthcare system and vulnerable populations throughout the province. Each phase is based on ongoing epidemiology, hospitalizations, employee absences and COVID-19 activity in long-term care facilities. If required, a phase may be paused to respond to trends at county or provincial levels. Additional plan details will be released as each phase starts.
To protect yourself and others, Public Health recommends that you should wear a mask in indoor public places, public transportation and crowded outdoor spaces.
