Nova Scotians Advised To Wear Masks On Transit And When Social Distance Can’t Be Kept

Nova Scotia’s, Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Robert Strang is advising all Nova Scotians to wear masks on public transit, in stores, at gatherings and in situations where social distancing can’t be kept.

“Reopening our economy and society is important but it also increases risk, so it is paramount that we continue our public health measures to minimize a second wave of COVID-19,” said Dr. Strang.

“That includes physical distancing as much as possible, good hand hygiene, cough etiquette, staying home if you’re sick and wearing a non-medical mask when you’re in public places like the grocery store where physical distancing is difficult.”

Exceptions to this advice are children under two or anyone who has medical reasons for not wearing a mask.
