As Nova Scotia moves into a stage of living with COVID-19 and we go about our daily activities, there are changes in how Public Health communicates COVID-19 public exposures. We are no longer issuing exposures based on risk levels of low, moderate, or high. We are issuing COVID-19 precaution notifications and COVID-19 exposure notifications, where your self-isolation and testing requirements will be based on your vaccination status. You can find this information in this table.
