Limits increasing for sports and rehearsals
Starting Monday, February 7, restrictions are easing for sports practices and arts and culture rehearsals.
All other restrictions will remain in place until February 14.
“Being cautious has served us well throughout the pandemic and we’re continuing that approach as we develop plans to gradually ease restrictions,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Chief Medical Officer of Health for Nova Scotia. “We’re taking this initial step because we recognize the physical and mental health benefits of having full sports practices and rehearsals for arts and culture performances.”
Sports practices and rehearsals for arts and culture performances can have up to 25 people indoors and 50 outdoors.
They cannot have multiple groups, games or performances.
Spectators are still not permitted.
Decisions about gradually easing other restrictions will be announced soon.
