Cape Breton Regional Hospital getting a new roof

Cape Breton Regional Hospital in Sydney is getting a new roof.

Work will begin this week to replace the hospital’s original roof, which is more than 26 years old. Work is expected to take approximately six months.

While the work is underway, people will still be able to access the building, however they are asked to use caution as they enter and leave the hospital or use its grounds. They are also asked to follow any signage that is in place and use caution in any areas where construction is active.

People are also reminded to follow COVID-19 measures including visitor restrictions, social distancing, wearing a non-medical mask and good hand hygiene.

Nova Scotia Health appreciates your patience and cooperation while this work is underway.
