Update COVID-19 for Nova Scotians: March 24

3 Views

Premier McNeil and Dr. Strang will provide an update today at 3 p.m. about 10 new cases of #COVID19. The cases are travel-related or connected to earlier reported cases. Several of the new cases are connected to groups who have returned to NS following travel outside of Canada. None of these cases are from spread within the community.

Premier McNeil and Dr. Strang also announced further measures to strengthen the health system and help Nova Scotians dealing with #COVID19.

Lab capacity is doubling to accommodate increased testing, and public health officials have begun testing all close contacts of positive cases. #COVID19NS

811 has increased staff and technology and is now answering 50 per cent more calls; on April 3, 811 will again double its capacity.

Government is expanding virtual care for physicians, nurse practitioners and others so they can offer appointments to patients through telephone or video. More than 80 providers have signed up for video so far.

Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting, focusing on high-risk areas and high-traffic areas and high-touch surfaces will help protect health-care workers and the public at hospitals. #COVID19NS

Regulated health professions can only stay open for emergency or urgent cases or to provide virtual care, as long as they can meet social distancing requirements in their waiting room or other non-clinical areas and follow the cleaning protocol.

Non-regulated health professions (such as naturopaths) must close. One exception is podiatrists who must follow the directive related to regulated health professions.

Access Centres and Registry of Motor Vehicle Offices will start to resume operations in a scaled back, limited contact business model. Many of the services are also available online. For more details, visit: https://novascotia.ca/closures/

Essential service sectors have been clarified as:
-- health
-- food, agri-food and fisheries
-- transportation (ex: trucking, rail, transit)
-- construction and manufacturing
-- IT, telecommunications and critical infrastructure
-- public services, such as police, fire and ambulances

Essential service sectors are exempt from the five-person-or-fewer gathering rules, and must still maintain social distancing and other public health protocols.
