Anyone who has travelled outside Nova Scotia may have come in contact with the novel coronavirus and should closely monitor their health for 14 days after returning to the country.

If you have travelled outside of Nova Scotia, you are required to stay at home/self-isolate away from the public.

Nova Scotians who have travelled out of country and who develop a fever with a temperature of 38°C or higher, and/or cough, should use this screening tool to find out if you should call 811 about COVID-19. https://when-to-call-about-covid19.novascotia.ca/en

If there is a need for in-person assessment, 811 will refer to a COVID-19 assessment centre and you will be contacted for an appointment.

Please do not go to a COVID-19 assessment centre without having been referred by 811.

Those directed to an assessment centre by 811 will then have a physical assessment on site and based on that a swab will be taken for patients for whom it is appropriate.

How do I know if I need to get tested?

If you have travelled outside of Canada and start to feel unwell, you should stay at home/self-isolate away from the public. If you have developed a fever, with a temperature 38°C or higher, and/or cough please call 811 for assessment.

811 will provide direction on what to do next. If there is a need for in-person assessment, 811 will refer to a COVID-19 assessment centre.

Please do not go to a COVID-19 assessment centre without having been referred by 811. We are working to be able to book specific appointment times in the coming days.

Those directed to an assessment centre by 811 will then have a physical assessment on site and based on that a swab will be taken for patients for whom it is appropriate.
