Masks in Indoor Spaces

Masks are now mandatory in most indoor public places as per the Province of Nova Scotia.
 
All Municipality of East Hants facilities including the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre and the East Hants Aquatic Centre are considered indoor public places and visitors are required to wear masks in these spaces.
 
The Province has exempted children under two and children aged two to four when their caregiver cannot get them to wear a mask. People with a valid medical reason for not wearing a mask are also exempt.
 
Information about wearing a non-medical mask can be found on the Province’s website

Visitors to our Facilities

In keeping with public health protocols and recommendations, we ask that visitors entering the inside of any of our Municipal facilities, including service contractors, adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Practice social distancing: Stay 2 metres/6 feet apart from other people as much as possible.
  • Wear a mask or face covering in our indoor spaces. In our facilities, this includes common areas like lobbies and hallways as many areas do not have the recommended 2 metres/6 feet of space available to socially distance, particularly when we have multiple visitors.
  • If you have travelled outside of the Atlantic bubble within the last 14 days, do not enter any of our facilities.
  • If you are feeling unwell and have any of the symptoms on the 811 list, please do not enter our facilities. If you are visiting the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre for Health Clinic Services and are feeling unwell, please wear a mask or face covering and notify Clinic reception upon entry.
  • Practice frequent handwashing.  Sanitizer is also available throughout our facilities for use.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Throw the used tissue in the garbage and wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand rub immediately.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, cough and sneeze into your elbow, not your hand.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. If you need to touch your face, wash your hands first.
  • Follow informational signage posted in our facilities.
