Covid-19 Update – Tuesday, September 14

The province announced that Nova Scotia will delay moving into phase 5 of the reopening plan until October 4.  Starting Oct. 4, people who are 12 and older will need to provide proof of full vaccination to participate in most events and activities that bring groups of people together. While the policy is not yet final, it will apply to participants and spectators for indoor and outdoor sports practices, games, competitions, and tournaments as well as indoor and outdoor extracurricular school-based activities, including sports. 

We will continue to update you as more information about the details of the vaccine policy become available to us.

Quick Notes

  • An exception policy for people who cannot get vaccinated because of a valid medical or behavioral reason is being developed. 
  • Children who turned 12 between January 1 and October 4 this year will have until December 31 to attend events and activities while they get vaccinated; children who turn 12 after October 4 will have three months from their birthday.
