  • Nova Scotia’s Reopening Plan

Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 Reopening Plan

Nova Scotia’s reopening plan takes a phased approach to safely easing restrictions. The 5-phase plan is based on the ongoing progress of provincewide vaccination rates and improvements of public health and healthcare indicators like COVID-19 activity and hospitalizations.

  • COVID-19 transmission will continue to be monitored.
  • 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.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN: PHASE FOUR (click here for full details on this phase).
