HEALTH OF NOVA SCOTIA PUBLIC HEALTH
Nova Scotia Health Public Health announces an update to a public display notice originally shared on Sunday, June 20, 2021.
In addition to press releases, all notifications of potential exposure are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.
UPDATE: Fit4Less Exposition
Anyone who has visited the Fit4Less Weight Zone (1535 Dresden Row, Halifax) on June 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. should immediately self-isolate and visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to book a COVID- 19, whether or not they have symptoms of COVID-19. You can also call 811 if you do not have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you. You should continue to self-isolate for 14 days whether or not you have symptoms, even with a negative test result. You are asked to repeat the test 6 to 8 days and 12 to 14 days after this exposure. It is expected that anyone exposed to the virus at this location on the date indicated may develop symptoms until June 30 inclusive.
** Please note that if you have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before the date of exposure, you are not required to self-isolate until you have any symptoms of the virus. You are always asked to get tested once and you should watch for symptoms for up to 14 days after the date of exposure. If symptoms appear, you should get tested again.
Nova Scotians now also have the ability to access their results online at c19results.nshealth.ca/. To be eligible to receive results online, by email, or by auto-call, you must bring a provincial health card or student card with you to your exam appointment. It may take up to 72 hours to receive or access test results. It is not uncommon for two or more family members to be tested at the same time and receive results at different times.
Do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment center uninvited. Please make an appointment online or call 811 and do not go to a pop-up quick test location.
Currently, anyone who has traveled outside of Nova Scotia should self-isolate for 14 days after arrival. If a person returning from a non-essential trip outside of Nova Scotia is unable to self-isolate, then everyone in the house where they self-isolate will also need to self-isolate.
When Nova Scotia Health Public Health makes a public notification, it is in no way a reflection of the behavior or activities of the persons named in the notification.
All Nova Scotians are urged to continue monitoring symptoms of COVID-19 and are encouraged to follow public health guidelines on how to access care. Up-to-date information on COVID-19 is available at novascotia.ca/coronavirus.
