NSHA advising of potential COVID-19 exposure at residential care home in Enfield

NSHA Public Health is advising of a potential public exposure to COVID-19 on March 11 at The Magnolia, 416 Highway #2, Enfield.
 
On March 11, a celebration of life was held at The Magnolia. Public Health has been directly contacting anyone known to be in attendance at the service. While most people have been contacted, there could be some attendees that Public Health is not aware of.
 
People who may have been exposed at The Magnolia are just past the 14-day period where they should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If you were at this on March 11 and you have developed any symptoms of COVID-19 since then, please call 811. This will help NSHA Public Health to identify any connected cases and will aid in containment efforts. 
 
COVID-19 symptoms include:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing

If you have COVID-19 symptoms:

  • Take the COVID-19 online self-assessment questionnaire to determine if you need to call 811. 
  • If needed, call 811 for assessment. Please self-isolate until you receive 811 advice on next steps.
  • Do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to do so by 811.

When NSHA Public Health makes a public notification it is not in any way a reflection on the behavior or activities of those named in the notification.

All Nova Scotians are advised to continue monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms and are urged to follow Public Health guidelines on how to access care. Up to date information about COVID-19 is available at novascotia.ca/coronavirus
