Art and sport are vital to our physical, mental and social well-being. That’s why our government announced yesterday that effective Oct. 1, the number of people who can participate in sports and performing arts activities without physical distancing, will increase from 10 to 50.

For most sports, this will allow full team practices and competition to resume, while for the performing arts, this will allow for larger rehearsals and performances. This change also applies to recreational league sports, like adult hockey, and drop-in activities, like open swims and skates.

It felt good to attend the Lunenburg County Christmas Tree Growers AGM, Fall Field Day & Trade Show, in person. Many updates on projects and initiatives happening and good to see that they were active through out COVID-19. And remember.... especially this year, It’s not what’s under your Christmas Tree but Who is around your Christmas Tree.🎄 ...

COVID-19/HEALTH/WELLNESS--No New Cases of COVID-19
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As of today, Sept. 19, Nova Scotia has no active cases of COVID-19. No new cases were identified Friday, Sept. 18.

Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 1,151 Nova Scotia tests on Sept. 18.

To date, Nova Scotia has 86,859 negative test results, 1,086 positive COVID-19 cases and 65 deaths. No one is currently in hospital. Cases range in age from under 10 to over 90. One thousand and twenty-one cases are now resolved. Cases have been identified in all parts of the province. Cumulative cases by zone may change as data is updated in Panorama.

Visit 811.novascotia.ca to determine if you should call 811 for further assessment if in the past 48 hours you have had, or you are currently experiencing:
-- fever (i.e. chills/sweats) or cough (new or worsening)
Or:
Two or more of the following symptoms (new or worsening):
-- sore throat
-- runny nose/ nasal congestion
-- headache
-- shortness of breath

When a new case of COVID-19 is confirmed, public health works to identify and test people who may have come in close contact with that person. Those individuals who have been confirmed are being directed to self-isolate at home, away from the public, for 14 days.

Anyone who has travelled outside of Atlantic Canada must self-isolate for 14 days. As always, any Nova Scotian who develops symptoms of acute respiratory illness should limit their contact with others until they feel better.

It remains important for Nova Scotians to strictly adhere to the public health order and directives - practise good hand washing and other hygiene steps, maintain a physical distance when and where required. Wearing a non-medical mask is mandatory in most indoor public places.

As of July 3, interprovincial travel within Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador, without the requirement to self-isolate for permanent Atlantic Canadian residents, is permitted. All public health directives of each province must be followed. Under Nova Scotia's Health Protection Act order, visitors from other Canadian provinces and territories must self-isolate for 14 days. Other visitors from outside the Atlantic provinces who have self-isolated for 14 days in another Atlantic province may travel to Nova Scotia without self-isolating again.

Nova Scotians can find accurate, up-to-date information, handwashing posters and fact sheets at novascotia.ca/coronavirus .

Businesses and other organizations can find information to help them safely reopen at novascotia.ca/reopening-nova-scotia .
