    I'm not saying teachers (and other school staff) should be first in line by any means. I agree Police and first responders should be prioritized as well, along with Metro Transit workers, the people working in grocery stores etc, real front line workers. Hell my SIL is a RN at the IWK and she hasn't received a first shot yet. But if we are being forced to ignore distancing rules set by PH, being in a building with over 1700 students and staff (in our larger high schools) for 6-7 hours a day with windows open for ventilation, and told we need to keep schools open to keep the economy running then offer us the vaccine to protect ourselves. You need to realize there are almost 10000 teachers in NS not including EPA's, Admin, Admin Assistants, Cafeteria workers, bus drivers etc that are potentially exposed to hundreds if not thousands of people / day and many of those have pre existing health conditions. The boards' answer to more PPE or health concerns, take an unpaid leave. Same when there has been a case in a school, there is quite a selective process on who is considered a close contact. I know of some HS teachers who were deemed a close contact, but when 2/3 of the particular class moved to another teacher for the afternoon, they were not considered a close contact. So damn right there should be some priority.

    But if you honestly believe that all kids attending school are pre screened and kept home with the sniffles I have some ocean front property in Nevada to sell you. That's the narrative being pushed to the public, but there is a percentage of kids being sent to school sick because it's only a cold, and the parent has to work. Don't kid yourself in thinking that everything is happening in the way the Liberals or the EECD are portraying it. You could not pay me enough to be an administrator in a NS school right now, they are being told to make the decisions for their schools and you know if something goes sideways, they will bear the brunt. Again I'm not taking away from other groups who should be prioritized for school staff, but there definitely should have been priority for those back at work as normal.

    The legislature is still doing a hybrid model because of safety, why aren't they working as normal with the same message they send to everyone else, follow guidelines and you will be ok. I'm not positive, but you would think running a province would be pretty essential work, especially when every other province has been doing it for months.

    I do agree with you that minority groups that are more prone to the disease should have priority though

    I am not that type of person, I could never pull it off. Plus there is only one hospital here :lol:
    I am an introvert and don't go out much anyway so this has been fairly comfortable for me because I don't like people on most days :shrug2: . I am building my shop (inside) working on tooling and things I need for a project I just took on for an old friend that is in no hurry, thank Dog because it is WAY out of my wheel house.

    Weird, I was reading this article this am, and the HA was justifying why they didn't release an exposure warning even after the Pub announced it was closing and getting everyone tested. Then this afternoon this was released with the Uniacke pub included. Some strange shit going on the past few days

    As far as I know there isn’t any record. Like everything else when it comes to Covid and NS it’s all under the guise of privacy.
    I just don’t understand why there is no priority other than healthcare and at risk racial groups (again not saying I don’t agree with those at at all) when in every other province there is a priority list, coupled with the ridiculous pace of roll out here. Strange keeps saying 40000 by the end of the week or something and yet we are still only doing a tad over 2k / day. Not sure if it’s the new math or what, but the numbers promised are not obtainable currently with the pace

    Condolences to the family. Crappy that someone else has passed from it. I guess that does explain the people in hospital numbers yesterday. I assume the delay in informing was out of respect for the family since the in hospital numbers were in the release yesterday but no mention of the passing

    COVID-19 Vaccine Groups Expanded; AstraZeneca Clinics Open to People Age 60 to 62

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    March 18, 2021 - 3:32 PM

    Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 vaccination program has expanded for those eligible to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine to include people 60 to 62 years of age.

    Booking opened March 16 for those age 63 and 64 at one of 25 pharmacies and doctors offices that are offering the AstraZeneca vaccine.

    AstraZeneca clinics in Halifax Regional Municipality are fully booked, but about 4,900 appointments are available in remaining clinics across the province. Starting today, March 18, people aged 60 to 62 are eligible to book appointments in clinics that are not full.

    All Nova Scotians are encouraged to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as they are eligible.

    The province’s goal continues to be to immunize as many Nova Scotians as quickly as possible, based on age, to reach a high rate of population immunity.

    COVID-19 vaccination appointments must be made online at novascotia.ca/vaccination or by phone at 1-833-797-7772. Appointments cannot be booked directly through a community clinic, pharmacy or physician. Walk-ins will be turned away.

    New Brunswick Border Opening, Remaining Restrictions Lifted

    Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced today, March 19, that the New Brunswick border is opening and remaining restrictions in parts of Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding communities will be lifted. Both changes are effective at 8 a.m. tomorrow, March 20.

    “We look forward to reopening the entire Atlantic bubble but in the meantime, with case numbers declining, we are comfortable opening the New Brunswick border,” said Premier Rankin. “We know many businesses and families need to cross this border frequently and we don’t want to delay their return to normal travel routines.”

    Just like residents of Prince Edward Island, residents of New Brunswick will no longer have to self-isolate upon arrival in Nova Scotia, and they won’t have to complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form. Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador must still follow these requirements.

    “Along with opening the New Brunswick border, we’re now in a position to lift the additional restrictions in areas of Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding communities,” said Dr. Strang. “The virus is still here, though, and everyone needs to remain vigilant if we want to avoid imposing restrictions again. Even as people start getting vaccinated, we need to continue following all the public health measures until the majority of Nova Scotians have immunity.”

    There are a few changes to the provincewide restrictions:

    • the general gathering limit remains at 10 indoors and outdoors
    • household gatherings will be increased from maximum 10 to households plus up to 10 others
    • immediate family members who live in the same household can be together outdoors even if that is more than 10 people
    • restaurants and licensed establishments can stop service by 11 p.m. and close by midnight
    • fitness facilities continue to operate at 75 per cent capacity but can return to two metres between people for all activities
    With restrictions lifted, the following is also allowed provincewide:
    • events hosted by a recognized business or organization can have 150 outdoors or 50 per cent capacity to a maximum of 100 indoors
    • events include social events, special events, sport events, arts and culture events, festivals, faith gatherings, weddings with receptions, and funerals with receptions and visitation
    • meetings and training hosted by recognized businesses and organizations can have 150 outdoors or 50 per cent capacity to a maximum of 100 indoors and organized clubs can break into cohorts of 15 following the day-camp guidelines
    • physical distancing is required for meetings and training except when emergency responders need to be closer than two metres for training
    • licensed establishments, unlicensed establishments such as community centres and charities, and organized clubs can host activities such as darts, cards, pool, bowling, bingo or karaoke following guidelines for these activities
    • visitors are allowed in long-term care facilities
    • visitors are allowed in adult residential centres and regional rehabilitation centres licensed by the Department of Community Services and residents can resume full community access
    • retail businesses and malls operate at 75 per cent capacity and follow other public health measures
    • sports practices and training and arts and culture rehearsals and performances can have 60 people without physical distancing
    • sports games, competitions and tournaments are allowed within the team’s regular competitive schedule
    • spectators are allowed if the business or organization hosting the event has a gathering plan that follows event guidelines
    Adult day programs for seniors remain closed provincewide until seniors living outside long-term care facilities have an opportunity to receive COVID-19 vaccine.

    COVID-19 protocols in public schools continue to be guided by Nova Scotia’s Back to School Plan.

    People who do not follow the gathering limit can be fined. The fine is $1,000 for each person at an illegal gathering.

    Update on Nova Scotia’s Immunization Plan

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    March 23, 2021 - 11:52 AM

    The province is on track to give every person who wants a COVID-19 vaccine in Nova Scotia their first dose by the end of June.

    “We have taken a steady and measured approach to the vaccine rollout so that we have a solid foundation in place to move large amounts of vaccine through clinics in communities across the province,” said Premier Iain Rankin.

    Since December 15, 66,287 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 20,579 Nova Scotians have received their second dose. As vaccine supply increases in April and May, so too will the number of locations that will offer it.

    The province will have five models of vaccine delivery – community clinics, pharmacy clinics, primary care clinics, outreach clinics and mobile clinics. Two-thirds of vaccines will be offered through pharmacies and physician clinics across the province. By May, the province will be able to administer about 86,000 doses per week.

    “We have always said we want to get good, then get fast. Nova Scotia’s growth, in terms of doses in arms, is steady and significant,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “Our goal is to build a high level of population immunity against COVID-19, as fast as possible.”

    Health-care workers and staff, and residents of licensed long-term care facilities will be fully vaccinated by the end of April. Most Nova Scotians will continue to receive their vaccine when they become eligible by age and based on anticipated vaccine supply.

    All Nova Scotians who are 80 and older are eligible to book their vaccine now.

    The following age groups are anticipated to become eligible to schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine in April: 75 to 79, 70 to 74, 65 to 69, 60 to 64, 55 to 59.

    The following age groups are anticipated to become eligible to schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine in May: 50 to 54, 45 to 49, 40 to 44, 35 to 39, 30 to 34, 25 to 29.

    The following age groups are anticipated to become eligible to schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine in June: 20 to 24, 16 to 19.
