**** NSHA Media Release
Nova Scotia Health Authority is limiting the number of people who can visit inpatients at all sites to prevent the spread of any respiratory illness, including COVID-19.
In NSHA facilities a patient can name up to two people who will be their family or primary support person/people. The person(s) chosen as family/primary support person may change over time as specified by the patient. The patient will let the health care team know who their family/primary support people are. Visitation will be limited to those individuals.
People who are sick or who live with someone who is sick should not visit patients.
Anyone visiting a patient should always wash or sanitize their hands before and after their visit.
