Potential exposure to variant case of COVID-19 at King’s Wharf Place in the Central Zone

Today the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness announced an additional variant case of COVID-19. As part of our investigation, Nova Scotia Health Public Health is working to identify any additional people who may have unknowingly come into contact with a positive case of COVID-19 to limit the potential spread of the virus.

Out of an abundance of caution, Public Health is asking anyone who worked at or visited any of the King’s Wharf Place businesses or lives in or visited the residences between March 10 – March 27 to get tested for COVID-19, whether or not you have symptoms or even mild symptoms.

Please immediately visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en to book a COVID-19 test. You can also call 811 and identify yourself as someone Public Health asked to be tested.

As this is a precautionary measure, you are not required to self-isolate while waiting for your test, unless you have any symptoms. If you have or develop any symptoms you must self-isolate while waiting for your test result. Symptoms include fever, new or worsening cough, sore throat, runny nose/nasal congestion, headache, or shortness of breath.

Please remember:

Do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to do so. Please book an appointment online and do not go to a pop-up rapid testing location.

When Nova Scotia Health Public Health makes a public notification it is not in any way a reflection on the behaviour 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. Up to date information about COVID-19 is available at novascotia.ca/coronavirus
