    I got more info from the guy I played with.

    He was at BMO soccer center at those times, but was on a different field than the positive case. He was un-aware until yesterday and played with me and some friends Friday night, again at BMO soccer center.

    Today's press release


    “I am concerned about the recent increase in both the number of cases and public exposure notices,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “We cannot become complacent about this virus. That means we all must continue to follow public health protocols, including social distancing, wearing a mask, proper hand hygiene and limiting social contacts.”

    The new cases are in Central Zone. All three cases are under investigation.

    “Contact tracing and testing are important components of public health during a pandemic,” said Dr. Strang, chief medical officer of health for Nova Scotia. “As positive cases are investigated public health may learn a person spent time in community settings, like a restaurant, while infectious or potentially infectious. If they are unsure that all contacts have been found, they use a public exposure notice to ensure everyone that may have been a close contact is aware and monitoring their health or getting tested if directed.”

    Stricter Self-isolation for Non-Essential Travel

    With cases of COVID-19 rising, there are new self-isolation requirements for people hosting travellers from outside the Atlantic bubble.

    Effective today, if a person travelling for non-essential reasons enters Nova Scotia from outside Atlantic Canada, everyone in the home where they are self-isolating will have to self-isolate as well. Nobody in that home can leave the property for 14 days and they cannot have visitors.

    “As we see the surge in COVID-19 cases in other parts of Canada, we need to take further steps to slow the spread here,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “I am worried people are becoming complacent. We all have our part to play in keeping each other safe and I remind everyone again to follow public health protocols – wash your hands, wear a mask, practise social distancing and limit social contacts.”

    Nova Scotians are also advised to avoid non-essential travel into and out of Atlantic Canada.

    “Nova Scotians should be sticking close to home, sticking to their close social groups, and sticking with all the public health measures to keep each other safe,” said Dr. Robert Strang, chief medical officer of health. “That includes masks, physical distancing, good hand hygiene/cough etiquette, small social circles, staying home when you’re sick, self-isolation when required and avoiding non-essential travel.”

    There is no change for:

    • rotational workers who continue to have modified self-isolation, which includes contact with people in their households until further notice
    • specialized workers who must self-isolate when they are not performing their critical, urgent work
    • people who have exceptions to attend a funeral or be with an immediate family member who is nearing end of life but must self-isolate when not doing these activities
    • people who are exempt from self-isolation under the public health order, such as military, police, first responders, truckers, flight crews, and others

    Quite a travel day. Everything smooth but frayed nerves getting around. Flight from Seattle to Vancouver was fine - half empty plane and everyone in the airport doing a great job with social distancing.

    Vancouver airport was pretty empty and flight to Toronto was again half empty.

    just heading out on flight to Halifax and it’s packed. No empty seats. Surprised but not worried.
