I need a COVID test for travel

Nova Scotia Health provides free testing to manage the pandemic in Nova Scotia. We do not provide testing for those needing documentation of their results for outbound travel. If you need specific documentation for travel purposes you will need to contact a private company to arrange testing. 

If you are an international visitor (or do not have a health card from a Canadian Province or Territory), we are not able to provide documentation of your test results.
