Information about Public Health follow-up for those who tested positive for COVID-19
between January 21 and 29
Due to high case numbers driven by the Omicron variant, Public Health continues to experience delays in follow-up with Nova Scotians who have tested positive for COVID-19. To focus on supporting detailed follow-ups in priority settings such as, long-term care, group homes, assisted living facilities and shelters, Public Health will not be providing follow-up to some individuals who tested positive for COVID-19.
Anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 between January 21 and 29, will not receive a call from Public Health. The notification they received confirming their test result will be their only contact with Public Health.​ Individuals are asked to continue to follow all guidance provided by Public Health and are encouraged to visit https://www.nshealth.ca/testedpositiveforcovid for more information. If your symptoms get worse, seek medical help by calling 811 or 911.​
Most people will now receive their COVID-19 positive test results through an automated email or online at https://c19results.nshealth.ca
