Visitors to NS hospitals are required to show proof of the vaccine starting October 13


Visitors to Nova Scotia hospitals will need to show proof of vaccination for Kovid-19 when they enter facilities from next week.

Nova Scotia Health announced Thursday that support people and visitors should begin evidence of their vaccine status starting October 13.

The policy applies to the support of a family or hospital patient designated for a specific examination, appointment or procedure, and for people who are accompanied by patients.

Exceptions may be made for certain situations, including emergencies and end-of-life care, the health authority said in the news. In those cases, supportive people should follow additional infection control measures.

Those seeking care or treatment in hospitals do not need proof of vaccination.
