The Province recently announced that improvements are being made to ensure Nova Scotians with symptoms of COVID-19 get tested faster. More information about this announcement is available at, EN: https://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20201001005; FR: https://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20201001006.
This announcement highlighted a new online self-assessment tool for COVID-19. It is available at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca. Families can always call 811 if they can’t access the online tool.
Attached are updated fact sheets (in English and French) that remind families about the steps they can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. The fact sheets further reinforce what happens if your child experiences symptoms in school.
Thank you for your continued commitment to protecting the health and safety of all Nova Scotians.
Our shared health is our shared responsibility!
