The Restaurants Association of Nova Scotia has reportedly recommended their membership in the Halifax area close their dine-in businesses to slow the spread of COVID-19. It is reportedly for two weeks.
Many restaurants will be switching to a take-out service to serve customers.
There will be a COVID-19 briefing today at 3:00PM with Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and Premier Stephen McNeil.
Yesterday evening, Dr. Strang told CTV’s Steve Murphy that more measures were on route for local Halifax dining establishments and bars.
Been To A Halifax Area Bar After 10PM?
If you have recently been to a Halifax bar or restaurant past 10PM or you work in one, you’re being asked to book a COVID-19 test.
The province has broadened their criteria for asymptomatic testing in people who have been to Halifax bars late at night.
You are being asked to get tested even if you are showing no symptoms.
