NEWS RELEASE
NOVA SCOTIA HEALTH
***********************
Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposures to COVID-19 on one WestJet flight and one Air Canada flight. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here.

As Nova Scotia moves into a stage of living with COVID-19 as we go about our daily activities, there will be changes in how Public Health communicates COVID-19 public exposures. We will no longer be issuing exposures based on the risk levels of low, moderate, or high. We will be issuing COVID precaution notifications and COVID exposure notifications, where your self-isolation and testing requirements will be based on your vaccination status. You can find this information in this table.

COVID Exposure Notification (the public has had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19)

If you were on the following flights in the specified rows and seats on the named dates and times, you are required to follow the instructions in this table for a COVID-19 Exposure Notification based on your vaccination status. 

  • WestJet 230 travelling on Oct. 7 from Calgary (10:00 a.m.) to Halifax (5:52 p.m.). Passengers in rows 16-22, seats C, D, E and F. It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus on this flight on the named date may develop symptoms up to, and including, Oct. 21.

For those who require testing, book your COVID-19 test here or call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you. When booking your test online, please select the reason for testing as: I was at one of the exposure sites at the date and time identified in a recent Public Health public service announcement or letter where testing was recommended. Please get tested at a COVID-19 testing centre or public health mobile unit; do not go to a pop-up rapid testing location. 

Anyone who is travelling within Canada into Nova Scotia must follow the provincial travel regulations based on vaccination status. View details here.
