Sport System FAQ: Phases Three and Four of Nova Scotia’s Reopening Plan


COVID-19 Update: June 4, 2021

Today the province has made a change for sport participant numbers for phase three. For both phases three and four, 25 people will be permitted on the field of play indoors without social distancing, and 50 people will be permitted on the field of play outdoors without social distancing for games practices and competitions. Sector-based plans are also being considered by the Province, and we will follow up as more information becomes available.  

Finally, the guidelines include references to no tournaments being able to be held. We recognize that for sport this language can mean different things. We’ll also be working with the province to provide more detail about this, as we did when regulations regarding tournaments and events were in place previously.
