Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, announced today, July 4, that Nova Scotia will remove all remaining COVID-19 restrictions in the community on Wednesday, July 6.

Most restrictions in high-risk settings will remain in place.

“This is the right time. Although we expect to see smaller waves of COVID-19 variants over the summer, our high vaccine coverage and low risk of severe disease from Omicron variants make it manageable as we learn to live with COVID-19. That’s why we are removing the remaining COVID-19 restrictions for the general public,” said Dr. Strang. “The pandemic is not over. But Nova Scotians have the tools and resources to make the right decisions to keep each other safe.”
