Notice of potential exposure

Public health only issues notices of potential exposure when they believe they may not have been able to contact all close contacts at that location. The vast majority of potential exposure sites are never the subject of a public notice.

Nova Scotia Health issued the following notice of potential COVID exposure last night:

Anyone who has worked or visited the following location on the specified date and time must visit self-assessment-covid.novascotia.ca / to book a COVID-19 test, whether or not they are showing symptoms. You can also call 811 if you do not have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you.

For the following locations, if you don’t have any symptoms of COVID-19, you don’t need to self-isolate while you wait for your test result. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should self-isolate while you wait for your test result, just like everyone else in your household.

  • Sobeys (2651 Windsor St, Halifax) June 20 between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. It is expected that anyone exposed to the virus at this location on the dates indicated may develop symptoms until July 4 inclusive.
