COVID-19 Update for CANS Members — May 14, 2021
The following message was sent Friday, May 14, 2021. We encourage CANS member firms to review the relevant recommendations and follow current public health measures.
Summary of Provincial Announcements & Restrictions
Travel within Nova Scotia
Remain as close to your home and community as possible, unless travel is essential for work, caregiving, necessary shopping or medical appointments, including vaccination appointments. Detailed information is available online here.
Testing & Isolation Requirements If you feel unwell, assume you have COVID-19 – book a test at a primary assessment site and isolate until you receive your test results. Those with no symptoms are strongly encouraged to use pop-up sites if they are not showing symptoms but want to be tested. Learn more about testing and isolation requirements.
Working From Home There is an increasing number of cases being identified in workplaces. Today, Dr. Strang announced more than 90 investigations are currently ongoing in HRM based workplaces. It is recommended that if you can work from home, do so. This will help slow the spread of COVID-19.
As of today, May 14, permanent Nova Scotia residents and people travelling for essential reasons must apply to enter the province. People will apply through the established Nova Scotia Safe Check-in.
People should apply about a week before they intend to travel. Applications will only be considered for permanent residents of Nova Scotia and people travelling for essential reasons. It is important to note that this does not change the 14-day self-isolation requirement.
