July 28, 2020 | by: Jamie Paterson


Starting this week, we will be required to wear non-medical masks in most indoor public places in Nova Scotia.

Masks will be mandatory in the following indoor public places as of July 31:

  •  retail businesses
  •  shopping centres
  •  personal services businesses, such as hair and nail salons, spas, body art facilities, except during services that require removing a mask
  •  restaurants and bars, except while people are eating or drinking
  •  places of worship or faith gatherings (masks can be removed temporarily for ceremonial purposes, such as receiving Communion or a couple during their wedding ceremony)
  •  places for cultural or entertainment services or activities such as movie theatres, concerts and other performances
  •  places for sports and recreational activities, such as a gym, pool or indoor tennis facility, except while doing an activity where a mask cannot be worn
  •  places for events such as conferences and receptions
  •  municipal or provincial government locations offering services to the public
  •  common areas of tourist accommodations, such as lobbies, elevators and hallways
  •  common areas of office buildings such as lobbies, elevators and hallways, but not private offices
  •  public areas of a university or college campus, such as library or student union building, but not classrooms, labs, offices or residences
  •  train or bus stations, ferry terminals and airports

Bottom line?  You’re going to need a mask!
