Reopening plan

Nova Scotia is gradually easing restrictions. The reopening plan takes a phased approach based on ongoing epidemiology and hospitalizations.

Reopening safely

The reopening plan gradually eases restrictions over 3 phases. Each phase is based on ongoing epidemiology, hospitalizations, employee absences and COVID-19 activity in long-term care facilities. During phase 1, events start again, gathering limits are increased and border restrictions are lifted for domestic travellers. Phase 2 further increases gathering limits. In phase 3, gathering limits and social distancing requirements are lifted.

Nova Scotia starts phase 1 of the reopening plan on 14 February 2022. Until then, all current provincewide restrictions and guidance remain in place.
