Premier Iain Rankin, alongside Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Robert Strang, announced this afternoon that starting tomorrow, Wednesday, April 28th, at 8 am, Nova Scotia will be following province-wide restrictions. These updated restrictions, as listed below, will remain in effect until at least May 12th. These restrictions include:
- All schools, public and private, are all closed
- Gyms, pools, and indoor events are all closed
- Long-term care homes are all closed with the exception of designated caregivers
- All non-essential services including shopping malls, retail, person care outlets. Restaurants and cars will be closed except for curb-side pick-up, take-out and delivery.

People who do not follow the public health measures can be fined. For example, the fine is now $2,000 for each person at an illegal gathering.
Premier Rankin believes that if all Nova Scotians work together, remain vigilant and follow the restrictions in place, we can flatten the curve. We encourage you to please stay home, stay safe, get tested, and get vaccinated.
