Nova Scotians who have been travelling should keep an eye on how they feel 

  The NSHA and Nova Scotia's department of health announced on March 11 that anyone who has travelled outside of Canada—therefore at risk of coming in contact with COVID-19—should pay close attention to their health for 14 days after returning home.

There are still no reported cases in Nova Scotia, but the NSHA is setting up assessment centres around the province, with three in HRM: Cobequid Community Health Centre in Lower Sackville, Dartmouth General Hospital and Halifax Infirmary.

Nova Scotian travellers who start to feel unwell are told to stay at home and self-isolate. Those who do develop a fever of over 38 C (100.4 F) and/or cough should call 811.
