Irving Shipbuilding Exception, Statement from Dr. Robert Strang
NOTE: The following is a statement from Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health
There have been a number of questions and concerns about an exception granted by Public Health to Irving Shipbuilding for travel to the U.S. I did give an exception in June with very tight restrictions, but now after concerns have been raised, I have revoked that exception and made clear there will be no further company travel to or from the U. S. I have also ordered the individuals be sent home to isolate for 14 days and asked for assurances that COVID testing has been completed.
