Walk-in testing options for residents of Annapolis and Kings Counties: Dec. 13 to 15

In response to the outbreak at Eden Valley Poultry Inc., Public Health is encouraging anyone who lives in the communities nearest the plant to get tested (New Minas to Middleton). This is a precautionary measure; there is no evidence currently of community transmission. 

Walk-in testing is available at two locations in Annapolis and Kings Counties. You may get tested if you:

  • have no symptoms
  • are not a close contact of a person with COVID-19
  • are not isolating because of travel outside of Atlantic Canada

You do not need to isolate while you wait for your results.

The testing method is standard PCR swab.

Standard (PCR) testing for those without symptoms is also available at Acadia University in Wolfville by appointment. You can schedule an appointment by completing a COVID-19 Self-assessment (choose the asymptomatic option).

Please remember:

Visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to do a self-assessment if in the past 48 hours you have had or you are currently experiencing:

  • fever or cough (new or worsening)

OR

  • two or more of the following symptoms (new or worsening):
    • sore throat
    • runny nose

    • shortness of breath

Currently, anyone travelling to Nova Scotia from outside of the Atlantic Provinces is expected to self-isolate alone for 14 days after arriving. If a person travelling for non-essential reasons enters Nova Scotia from outside Atlantic Canada, then everyone in the home where they are self-isolating will have to self-isolate as well.

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
