Border Tracking Form for Non-Bubble Travellers to Nova Scotia Now Online
Travellers entering Nova Scotia from outside the Atlantic Canadian bubble must fill out a tracking and self-declaration form, available at: http://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/alerts-notices/Self-declaration-Form-Tracking-Travellers-to-Nova-Scotia.pdf
Non-bubble visitors must provide an address where they will be staying and self-isolating for 14 days and a phone number where they can be reached 24/7. Provincial staff will contact those visitors every day to make sure they are observing the 14-day self-isolation requirement.
“We’ve sacrificed too much in Nova Scotia to allow people who won’t follow the rules to put everyone else at risk,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “We’re working hard to reopen our economy safely, to let people explore our province this summer, and to reunite them with their loved ones. Most people are being safe and following the rules and we expect everyone who enters Nova Scotia to do the same.”
If visitors who are supposed to be self-isolating do not answer their phone after three attempts in one day, police will be called and in-person checks will be conducted. The fine for violating the Health Protection Order is $1,000 for a first offence.
