    I'm surprised there are any rotational workers left. Oil & Gas industry isn't exactly struggling for workers these days.

    Hence the blanket statement “related to travel outside of the Atlantic provinces” so yeah more than likely a rotational worker.

    Enhanced COVID-19 Testing Process for Nova Scotians

    Starting today, Oct. 28, online booking for COVID-19 testing appointments is available for any Nova Scotian getting a test through primary assessment centres in the Central Zone or at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax.

    “Allowing people to book their own COVID-19 test will significantly reduce the wait time from when someone first starts experiencing symptoms, to the time they receive their test results,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “With the new process, it should only take 10 minutes to book an appointment.”

    Central Zone includes Halifax Regional Municipality, Eastern Shore and West Hants. Online booking is expected to be available in the Northern, Western and Eastern Zones by the second week of November.

    No update as of yet from the province; however, this release from the NS Health Authority:

    http://www.nshealth.ca/news/potential-covid-19-exposure-two-separate-flights-halifax

    Potential COVID-19 exposure on two separate flights to Halifax

    Nova Scotia Health is advising of potential public exposure to COVID-19 on two recent flights arriving in Halifax:
    • Air Canada flight 7488 from Montreal to Halifax on October 25, 2020. The flight departed Montreal at 7:15 p.m. and arrived in Halifax at 9:50 p.m. Public health is advising that passengers in rows 21 to 27, seats D,E and F monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and call 811 for advice if needed.
    It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus on flight AC7488 may develop symptoms up to, and including, November 8. Those present on this flight but not in the identified rows and seats should continue to self-isolate as required and self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 until November 8.
    • Air Canada flight 622 from Toronto to Halifax on October 27, 2020. The flight left Toronto at 6:40 p.m. and arrived in Halifax at 9:40 p.m. In this case, the passenger moved throughout the plane. Public health recommends all passengers on this flight monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days and call 811 for advice if needed.
    It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus on flight AC622 may develop symptoms up to, and including, November 10. Those present on this flight should continue to self-isolate as required and self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 until November 10.

    (Which probably means at least two new cases today)

    (EDIT: Make that at least three)

    http://www.nshealth.ca/news/potential-covid-19-exposure-glenholme-restaurant

    Potential COVID-19 exposure at Glenholme restaurant

    Nova Scotia Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 at Glenholme Loop Petro Pass Restaurant, located at 3376 Hwy 104, Debert, on October 25, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

    Anyone present at this location during this time are asked to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus at this location on the named date may develop symptoms up to, and including, November 8.

    You'd think they'd put something better in place before letting people fly anywhere.

    OK, so it was two.

    upload_2020-10-30_14-58-23.png

    Today's press release

    The two new cases are in the Northern Zone and are related to travel outside Atlantic Canada. One individual has been in self-isolation since returning to the province, as required. The other individual was not required to self-isolate under the Health Protection Act Order, but did self-isolate as symptoms developed. The order allows workers who are essential to the movement of people and goods and who must enter Nova Scotia as part of their work, to be exempt from the requirement to self-isolate.

    The province is renewing the state of emergency to protect the health and safety of Nova Scotians and ensure safety measures and other important actions can continue. The order will take effect at noon Sunday, Nov. 1 and extend to noon Sunday, Nov. 15, unless government terminates or extends it.

    Today's press release

    Of the new cases, two are in the Western Zone, two are in Northern Zone and one in Central Zone. Four are related to travel outside Atlantic Canada and one is related to a previous case. All have been self-isolating as required.

    “These new cases show that with the second COVID-19 wave happening, travel outside the Atlantic Bubble is more risky,” said Dr. Robert Strang, chief medical officer of health for Nova Scotia. “Our recent new cases are all related to travel. Nova Scotians should reduce non-essential travel outside of the Atlantic Bubble. In addition, having all Nova Scotians following the public health measures reduces the chance of the virus spreading when it does get here.”

    Among the most successful Canadian regions have been the four small provinces along the Atlantic Ocean, all of which have almost extinguished the virus. They have done so by largely closing their borders — a strategy that has also worked in several other countries, including Australia, Ghana, Taiwan and Vietnam, despite skepticism from some political liberals around the world.
