Regardless of whether or not you have COVID-19 symptoms, those present at the following location on the named date and times for at least 15 minutes are required to follow the self-isolation instructions noted in this table for a moderate risk exposure, based on your vaccination status. COVID-19 testing is also recommended and if you get a positive result, you will be contacted by Public Health about what to do next.

  • Split Crow Pub (1855 Granville Street, Halifax) on August 19 between 6:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus at this location on the named date may develop symptoms up to, and including, September 2. 

*CORRECTION*: The entire second level is considered moderate risk. The lower deck area is considered low risk. Please see the instructions table linked above for moderate and low risk exposures.

Please note:

Please get tested at a primary assessment centre or public health mobile unit; do not go to a pop-up rapid testing location.
