Anyone who was on the following flight in the specified rows and seats should visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether you have COVID-19 symptoms. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access, or if you have other symptoms that concern you.  

• WestJet flight 3346 travelling on Jan. 30 from Toronto (9 a.m.) to Halifax (12:31 p.m.). Passengers in rows 8-14, seats A, B and C are asked to immediately visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether you have COVID-19 symptoms.

If a person returning from non-essential travel outside Nova Scotia, P.E.I., or Newfoundland and Labrador is unable to isolate alone, then everyone in the home where they are self-isolating will also have to self-isolate.
