QuickPoll: Would you report an improper COVID-19 gathering?

On November 20th, the province announced new gathering limits to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:

New gathering limits will apply in all of HRM except the areas east of Porters Lake to Ecum Secum. The limits will also apply to the Enfield and Mount Uniacke areas in both HRM and Hants County. The limits do not apply in Elmsdale and communities north of there. From Nov. 23, at 12:01 a.m., to Dec. 21, the gathering limits in those areas of HRM and Hants County will be as follows:

 — five people can gather in a close social group without physical distancing, down from 10

— a household may have more than five members but they may only go outside the home in groups of five 

— households can only have a maximum of five visitors at a time 

— onsite gatherings at long-term care facilities can have a maximum of five people (including residents and staff), down from 10

— adult day programs for seniors who live in the community will not be allowed 

— 25 people, down from 50, can gather with physical distancing for informal indoor and outdoor social events like a neighbourhood street party

— indoor events run by a recognized business or organization can have 50 per cent of the venue’s capacity to a maximum of 100 people with physical distancing, down from 200

— outdoor events run by a recognized business or organization can have 150 people with physical distancing, down from 250
