Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 on a Metro Transit Bus in the Central Zone. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.​
Anyone who travelled on Bus #8 on the specified dates and times is asked to visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 you are required to self-isolate while you wait for your test result. If you do not have any symptoms of COVID-19 you do not need to self-isolate while you wait for your test result.
  • Halifax Transit Bus #8 on March 30 and March 31 (same route both days):
  • 7:20 am to 8:50 am ( Barrington Street to Bedford Highway)
  • 4 to 5:30 pm (Bedford Highway to Barrington Street)
Please remember:
Do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to do so. Please book an appointment online and do not go to a pop-up rapid testing location.
Currently, anyone who traveled outside Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or PEI is expected to self-isolate alone for 14 days after arriving. If a person returning from non-essential travel outside Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI is unable to isolate alone, then everyone in the home where they are self-isolating will have to self-isolate as well.​
When Nova Scotia Health Public Health makes a public notification it is not in any way a reflection on the behaviour or activities of those named in the notification.​
