The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) says it has learned of possible exposures to COVID-19 at two popular businesses along Quinpool Road in Halifax.
The health authority says the potential exposures happened at the Canadian Tire and Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) locations on April 18.
The potential exposure at the Canadian Tire happened between 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., while the potential exposure at NSLC was between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Public health says it’s been directly contacting anyone known to be a close contact of the person confirmed to have COVID-19.
“While most people have been contacted, there could be some contacts that public health is not aware of,” the NSHA said in an advisory on Thursday.
“It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus on the named dates at these locations may develop symptoms up to, and including, May 2, 2020.”
The health authority is asking the public to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
