    Restrictions Lifted in Halifax Regional Municipality

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    March 4, 2021 - 12:07 PM

    Given low COVID-19 cases, the province is lifting or altering restrictions currently in place for Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and its neighbouring communities.

    Many restrictions that came into effect on Feb. 27, such as restaurant hours, sport competitions, culture performances and non-essential travel, will end Friday, March 5 at 8 a.m.

    “Last week we were worried about increased case numbers in Halifax but what we are seeing this week warrants lifting some restrictions early,” said Premier Iain Rankin. “I know that restrictions can have a significant impact on businesses but safety is always the first priority, and I want to thank Nova Scotians for following public health advice as that has allowed us to ease them earlier. Thank you for doing your part to keep yourself, your family and your communities safe.”

    The following activities will be allowed:

    • travel in and out of HRM and surrounding municipalities
    • participants and officials in performing arts and sports (recreational, amateur and professional) can gather in groups of up to 60 people without social distancing for rehearsals, performances, practices and regular competitive schedule
    • spectators at performing arts and sports will be allowed as long as the host facilities have a gathering plan
    • the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development will reopen public school gyms for after-school use on March 6
    • restaurants and bars will return to previous dine-in service requirements, with service stopped by 10 p.m. and close by 11 p.m.
    • weddings and funeral in a faith facility or funeral homes can have 150 people outdoors or 50 per cent of capacity to a maximum of 100 indoors. Receptions and visitations continue to be not permitted in HRM and surrounding municipalities
    Unchanged is the requirement for residents of long-term care facilities to only have visits from their two designated caregivers and can only leave the facility for medical appointments or for a drive with a designated caregiver. This restriction remains in effect until March 27 in HRM and surrounding municipalities. “Thank you to all the Nova Scotians who turned out for testing over the past week,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “These record numbers helped give us a bigger picture of the virus in HRM and elsewhere in the province. It was critical to this decision.”

    Premier Rankin and Dr. Strang will address the easing of restrictions in more detail at Friday’s COVID-19 briefing.

    Affected by the restrictions were the suburban and urban areas of Halifax, including Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, Sackville, Cole Harbour, Eastern Passage, Middle Porters Lake, Fall River, Enfield, Lantz, Hammonds Plains, Herring Cove, the Prestons, Lake Echo, Timberlea, Tantallon, Mount Uniacke and St. Margarets Bay.

    Today's press release

    Five new cases of COVID-19 are being reported in Nova Scotia today, March 9.

    Three of the cases are in Central Zone and the other two are in Western Zone. They are all close contacts of previously reported cases.

    The National Microbiology Lab confirmed five new variant cases – three more cases of the UK variant and two more cases of the South African variant, all of which are in Central Zone.

    This brings the total number of cases of the UK variant in Nova Scotia to 11 and the South African variant to eight.

    All three UK variant cases and one of the South African variant cases are directly linked to known cases or international travel.

    The other South African variant case has no known link to a previously reported variant case or to travel. This person was tested earlier this month and their illness is considered resolved. The investigation is still ongoing and so far, none of their close contacts have tested positive.

    At this time, there is no sign of community spread from the variant cases.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 26 active cases of COVID-19.

    Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 2,841 Nova Scotia tests on March 8.

    As of March 8, 40,231 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 14,542 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    AstraZeneca Vaccine to Roll Out March 20

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    March 9, 2021 - 11:39 AM

    Nova Scotians ages 63 and 64 will be the first group eligible to access the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine starting Saturday, March 20.

    The vaccine will be available at 25 locations across the province on a first come, first served basis.

    "We have a solid plan to offer the AstraZeneca vaccine to a specific age group as a start and it’s thanks to the hard work of everyone at Doctors Nova Scotia and the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia who answered the call,” said Premier Iain Rankin. "This vaccine provides another tool in our fight against COVID-19 and builds on the roll-out that is already underway in our province as we work to vaccinate all Nova Scotians.”

    The province has partnered with the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia and Doctors Nova Scotia to help deliver 13,000 doses of the vaccine before April 2.

    The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is given on a two-dose schedule. Do not call clinic locations to book your appointment. All appointments must be made online at https://www.novascotia.ca/vaccination or by calling toll-free 1-833-797-7772. Booking for appointments opens Tuesday, March 16.

    As our supply of AstraZeneca increases, we will continue to offer this vaccine to Nova Scotians who are between the ages of 50 to 64, starting with those who are oldest and working backward by age.

    Nova Scotians who are eligible, but do not want to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, can get their vaccine when they become eligible based on their age under Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 immunization plan.

    “All COVID-19 vaccines provide good protection against severe COVID-19 illness,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “Having the AstraZeneca vaccine will allow eligible Nova Scotians to have an option to receive an earlier immunization.”

    The province will also soon have more vaccine than expected with 38,000 extra doses of Pfizer-BioNtech arriving in the last two weeks of March.

    Recently updated guidelines from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization has extended the second dose interval of COVID-19 vaccines to 16 weeks. This change means more Nova Scotians will receive a first dose of vaccine sooner.

    Today is the one year anniversary of my kids being sent home from school - they haven’t stepped inside a school since. Completely weird that my daughter started high school during the pandemic - still hasn’t really met her teachers of new classmates.

    I remember this day pretty vividly - I finally convinced my wife that we should do a “supply run”. This was back in the period where shelves were empty, especially things like toilet paper and hand sanitizer. I took the morning off work, we went out for breakfast and it was while we were driving to Costco that the calls came in from the school board announcing the kids were being sent home.

    pretty surreal.

    We have been super fortunate here. Aside from the kids wearing masks every day, school has been pretty normal this year. Here's hoping it stays that way and we get vaccine rollouts sooner than later

    I play soccer there every Thursday, good they let us know nearly a month later, and with that time frame it had to be someone who works in the rink, or the HSSC coordinator that keeps time of the games. If it was a player they'd know a very specific time frame
