PSO Update: September 8, 2021

Today the province announced that Nova Scotia will move into Phase 5 of its reopening plan at 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 15. At this time, the only restrictions that will remain in place for the general population are those related to management of COVID-19 cases. Border measures will remain in place, and the province will also start requiring proof of full vaccination for non-essential, discretionary, recreation and leisure services and activities on Oct. 4. 

It was also announced that as of Oct. 4, proof of full vaccination will be required for Nova Scotians who are 12 or older to participate in discretionary, recreational or non-essential activities such as dining out, going to a fitness facility, or going to a movie, theatre performance, concert or sporting event. Vaccine requirements include participants and attendees at sporting activities including practices, training, tournaments etc.  

The proof of vaccination requirement does not apply to children 11 years of age and under because they are not eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Children age 11 and under who attend these activities with a fully vaccinated adult will be allowed to participate.
