Provincial Visitor Information Centres to Close Until Further Notice

Given the concern of COVID-19 and recent guidance from public health officials, visitor information centres that are open year-round at Amherst and Halifax Stanfield International Airport will be closed effective Tuesday, March 17, until further notice.

As an additional precaution, Tourism Nova Scotia office staff will work from home.

The tourism contact centre, which handles calls from travellers seeking trip planning information, will also be closed until further notice. Anyone who calls the 1-800 line or stops at a visitor information centre will be directed to the government of Nova Scotia’s website for detailed information on COVID-19, as well as for travel information and updates. Operations will resume to normal when appropriate.
