COVID-19 restrictions that were due to expire on Monday have been extended for another two weeks with some changes.
Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Robert Strang says this will give the province a chance to see the impact of the holidays.

Some restrictions that will continue to remain in place keep assembly limits at 10 inside homes, restaurants, and licensed establishments stopping service before 10 p.m. and closing at 11 p.m. and fitness facilities must operate at 50% of their capacity and must be three meters between people during high intensity activities, among others.

Dr Strang says the province must continue its cautious and balanced approach.

“Keeping it as it is for at least two more weeks will give us the chance to really see the impact of the vacation,” Strang said. “Our approach is cautious and we will continue to be cautious in January until we can be sure the impact of the holiday season is behind us. ”

Some changes to the restrictions come into effect Monday, as retail businesses and malls can increase their operating limits to 50 percent.

The Halifax Casino, TLVs, and First Nations gambling establishments may also reopen in the HRM and Hants County areas.
