As we approach the final phase of the province's plan to lift all COVID-19 restrictions, HRM says there will be some changes to municipal services.

Effective Mar. 21, Nova Scotia is lifting all COVID-19 restrictions, including the mask mandate and the state of emergency.

In a release, HRM says says though the municipality's mandatory mask policy will be lifted, wearing a mask indoors and while using Halifax Transit services is recommended. 

The polycarbonate shields that were previously installed behind operators on conventional buses and access-a-buses will remain in place. Regular sanitization of high-traffic areas and will continue.  

Proof of vaccination is no longer required for non-essential, discretionary events and activities, and this includes recreation programming and visiting recreation and fitness centres.

As of Tuesday, Mar. 22, regional council meetings will return to an in-person format.
