If you are entering Nova Scotia from outside the Atlantic bubble, you are legally required to self-isolate for 14 days and must get tested for COVID-19 three times while you are self-isolating. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the protocols below, as well as supports available to you for groceries, orientation, and more.
Self-isolation means you go straight to the place in Nova Scotia where you plan to complete your self-isolation period and you stay there for 14 days. You cannot have visitors. You must have food and essentials delivered. If you’re in a house, you can go outside, but you cannot leave the property. If you’re in an apartment, you cannot leave the apartment, but you can go on a private balcony if there is one.
If you share accommodations with other people, you must self-isolate from them by following the Nova Scotia’s How to Self-Isolate directives, such as using a separate bedroom and bathroom if possible, keeping shared spaces clean and well-ventilated, increased cleaning of high touch surfaces (light switches, door handles, etc.), and physical distancing.
