Premier Iain Rankin announced the updated rules during a Friday press briefing, saying that residents of New Brunswick will no longer have to self-isolate upon arrival in Nova Scotia, however, Nova Scotians will still have to quarantine going into New Brunswick.
He also announced the province is lifting remaining coronavirus restrictions in the Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding communities: resuming visitation to long-term care homes and the allowance of special events and festivals hosted by recognized organizations.
Other updates include increasing household gathering limits to 10 visitors plus the number of people in the household and a province-wide change that will allow restaurants and bars to serve food and drink for an extra hour.
