NS Hospitals Limiting Visitors Due To Coronavirus


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.
Additional information about NSHA’s response to COVID-19 is available at http://www.nshealth.ca/coronavirus.
