COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Should you experience these symptoms and have recently travelled internationally to an affected region, avoid contact with others and contact NS811.  NS811 will provide direction on what to do next – if there is a need for in-person assessment, NS811 will refer to a COVID-19 assessment centre


Do you need to call NS811 - use the Government of NS online Screening Tool to find out if you should call 811 about COVID-19.

 

We can all help to prevent the spread of infection through the following measures:

  • Wash your hands with soap & water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cough or Sneeze into your sleeve and not your hands
  • Stay at home if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others
