Update for Facility Visitors – November 1st 2021
Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health has determined, given the ongoing presence of COVID-19 and its Delta variant in Nova Scotia and the effectiveness of immunization at stopping transmission, that all personnel and visitors to a High-Risk Setting must provide proof of vaccination (being fully vaccinated) before November 30, 2021.
As of November 30th, 2021, visitors, volunteers, outside service providers, and designated caregivers, will need to be fully vaccinated to enter our facility. You are not considered fully vaccinated until 14 days after any of the following:
- You have received your second dose of a two-dose series vaccine (e.g. Moderna/Pfizer)
- You have received a one-dose series vaccine (E.g. Johnson & Johnson)
- You have received the final dose in any other World Health Organization approved COVID-19 vaccine.
While being screened you will be asked to show your proof of vaccination and valid ID according to the requirements above. If you are unable to show proof of vaccination and ID after November 30, 2021, you will not be permitted to enter any of our facilities.
