Global News will be compiling all of the potential COVID-19 exposure sites Nova Scotia Health issues a warning for.

People who were at exposure sites during the listed times should visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to book a COVID-19 test, or call 811. They should not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to and should not go to a pop-up rapid testing site.

As well, anyone who has travelled outside of Nova Scotia or PEI is expected to self-isolate alone for 14 days. If someone returning from non-essential travel outside of Nova Scotia or PEI can’t isolate alone, then everyone in the home will have to self-isolate as well.
