    Well this is fucked. For the past three days they've come on and said they expect the numbers to continue to grow even after the restrictions Then the next day they come on with more restrictions because the numbers grew.

    New Restrictions For Entire Province

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    April 27, 2021 - 4:50 PM

    Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced today, April 27, new restrictions across the province to stop the spread of COVID-19.

    “This is not the time for half measures,” said Premier Rankin. “We need strong, quick action to drive this virus out of our province. If we took an incremental approach, we’d likely end up in the same place. We need to regain control over this virus.”

    The new restrictions include closing most retail businesses, reducing gatherings to household bubbles and closing public and private schools across the province.

    “We are in a race between the variant and the vaccine,” said Dr. Strang. “There is substantive risk of community spread across the province. We need to slow that spread until we are closer to population immunity through our vaccination program.”

    The following restrictions are effective 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 28, and will remain in effect until at least May 12:

    Gatherings, schools and daycare

    • Nova Scotians can only gather indoors or outdoors with their household bubble, which is the people they live with
    • households of two or less people can socialize with one or two others but they must be the same people for this two-week period
    • no unnecessary travel between communities; a community is defined as the municipality where you live - people should stay as close to home as possible when accessing essential or necessary services or products
    • all public and private schools are closed
    • day cares will remain open, with the focus on providing service to those providing essential services or have no other child-care option; essential workers who need help to access childcare supports can contact ECDSERVICES@Novascotia.ca or call 1-877-223-9555
    Masking
    • mandatory masking for staff, visitors and children over two years old in indoor child-care settings
    • mandatory masking outdoors where physical distancing cannot be maintained, including playgrounds and parks
    • in private indoor workplaces such as offices or warehouses, masks are mandatory in all common areas, places where there is interaction with the public, areas with poor ventilation, and areas where distance cannot be maintained
    Retail and business
    • retail stores are closed for in-person service unless those stores provide services essential to the life, health or personal safety of individuals and animals. These stores can remain open at 25 per cent capacity and include those that provide:
    • food
    • pharmaceutical products, medicine and medical devices
    • personal hygiene products
    • cleaning products
    • baby and child products
    • gas stations and garages
    • computer and cellphone service and repair
    • electronic and office supplies
    • hardware supplies
    • pet and animal supplies
    • restaurants and licensed establishments are closed for dine-in service, but contactless take-out or delivery is allowed
    • Nova Scotia Liquor Commission stores can remain open at 25 per cent capacity
    • personal services such as hair salons, barber shops and spas are closed
    • regulated and unregulated health professions can remain open with an approved COVID-19 plan
    • Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax and Sydney and First Nations gaming establishments and VLTs must close
    Events, recreation, arts and culture
    • wedding and funeral ceremonies can have five people, plus officiants
    • no social events, special events, festivals, arts/cultural events, sports events, faith gatherings, wedding receptions, or funeral visitation or receptions
    • no meetings or training except mental health and addictions support groups, which can have 10 people with physical distancing and masks
    • virtual gatherings and performances can be held with a maximum of five people in one location
    • all fitness, recreational and sports facilities are closed
    • licensed and unlicensed establishments cannot host activities such as darts, cards, pool and bowling
    • indoor fitness facilities like gyms and yoga studios and sport and recreation facilities like pools, arenas, tennis courts and large multipurpose recreation facilities are closed
    • businesses and organizations offering a wide variety of indoor recreation activities are closed, such as indoor play areas, arcades, climbing facilities, dance classes and music lessons
    • outdoor recreation activities, including individual sports, are allowed and encouraged; outdoor fitness and recreation businesses and organized clubs can operate with a maximum of five people and physical distancing
    • museums, libraries and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia are closed, but libraries can offer pick-up and drop-off of books and other materials
    Long-term care/special care
    • there will be no visitors or volunteers allowed inside long-term care facilities except for designated care providers and no visits to the community
    • all adult day programs for seniors closed
    • all homes licensed by the Department of Community Service under the Homes for Special Care Act cannot have visitors and residents cannot have community access
    • all adult day programs for persons with disabilities funded by the Department of Community Services will be closed except for scheduled vaccine clinics at three of these programs
    People who do not follow the public health measures can be fined. For example, the fine is now $2,000 for each person at an illegal gathering.

    Update on COVID-19 testing

    Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 06:02PM

    Nova Scotia Health Public Health would like to thank Nova Scotians for answering the call to get tested for COVID-19. Due to the high demand, Central and Eastern Zones are experiencing capacity challenges.

    Our priority remains to test those who have symptoms, those who have been to potential exposure locations and high risk close contacts notified by Public Health. If you don’t have symptoms and still want to get tested, we want you to get tested but we ask for your patience. You can visit a pop-up rapid testing site or book an asymptomatic test at a primary assessment centre. Please do not book a symptomatic appointment if you don’t have symptoms. It’s important to keep those appointments free for those who show symptoms.

    As a reminder, there are three options for getting a COVID test in Nova Scotia:

    • Primary assessment centres,
    • Public health mobile units and
    • Pop-up rapid testing.
    Unless otherwise specified, testing at primary assessment centres and public health mobile units is by appointment only. There is currently drop-in testing at the Membertou Entertainment Centre in Sydney from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily and at all pop-up rapid testing locations. Unfortunately, drop-ins at all other locations will be turned away.

    Available appointments at primary assessment centres and mobile units are posted three days in advance in our booking system. If you do not see an available appointment, please check back. When people cancel appointments, they also reappear in the booking system. When booking a test, please book at a location closest to your home.

    All of our primary assessment centres and public health mobile units offer gargle testing as an option for children and youth between the ages of 4 and 18. Children and youth must not eat, drink, chew gum, brush teeth, smoke or vape for at least one hour before the test. If children are practicing gargling at home, they must not gargle for at least two hours before their appointment.

    For more information about testing options: www.nshealth.ca/coronavirustesting

    From what I can tell of the posts I see friends putting up, their are lots of spots but people don’t realize there are multiple different testing locations - ie: not everyone has to go to the main location.

    One New School Reports COVID-19 Case

    Education and Early Childhood Development / COVID - 19

    April 27, 2021 - 8:10 PM

    Nova Scotia is reporting one new school with a COVID-19 case connected to it today, April 27.

    Strait Area Education Recreation Centre (SAERC) in Port Hawkesbury is moving to at-home learning as of Wednesday, April 28, along with all public and private schools across the province. SAERC will undergo a deep cleaning.

    Public health will be in touch with any close contacts of positive cases and advise of next steps, including testing. Everyone who is a close contact will be notified, tested and asked to self-isolate for 14 days.

    Out of an abundance of caution, public health is recommending that all students and staff be tested. No self-isolation is required, unless people have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.

    I know here on the Eastern Shore they had very limited testing, especially as you go further east. Like stated already, testing that is available is pretty limited, books quickly, and a lot of folks don't want to travel into the city for the open appointments/walk ins.

    I realise I don't have friends in every area of the province, for sure. :) I'm really just saying their might be alternative options if you look. A doctor friend in Truro literally just posted to Facebook saying, "Come to the Legion for testing - no one here, come on in!" whereas another friend in Truro complaining about the lines at the main site everyone knows about. Truro isn't quite as rural as your redneck part of the province, though. :P

    Today's press release

    Seventy-five new cases of COVID-19 are being reported in Nova Scotia today, April 28.

    Sixty-seven cases are in Central Zone, one case is in Western Zone, and one case is in Northern Zone.

    Six cases are in Eastern Zone, one of which was identified Tuesday, April 27, at Strait Area Education Recreation Centre in Port Hawkesbury.

    One of the cases in Central Zone is a staff member at Northwood’s Halifax Campus, a nursing home in Halifax. As a precaution, residents are being isolated and cared for in their rooms. All residents, staff and designated care providers are being tested. Most residents have been fully vaccinated with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

    Another case in Central Zone is a staff member at Quest Regional Rehabilitation Centre in Lower Sackville. As a precaution, residents are being isolated and cared for in their rooms. All residents and staff are being tested. Most residents have been fully vaccinated with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

    Due to an increased number of investigations in recent days, the exposure category (i.e., travel, close contact or under investigation) is not always available by release time. A breakdown by zone identifying exposure categories will no longer be provided regularly. There is community spread in Central Zone. The Eastern, Northern and Western Zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 489 active cases of COVID-19. Eleven people are in hospital, including three in ICU.

    Due to technical difficulties, the total number of tests and number of tests completed at the Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs on April 27 is not available.

    As of April 27, 293,763 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 35,549 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    I’ve been chatting with co-workers in Noida, one of the hardest hit cities. It’s absolutely terrifying what they are going through right now.
