In Halifax, Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, and Premier Iain Rankin provide an update on the province’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. They announce that a circuit breaker is being introduced in Halifax and some of its surrounding communities due to increasing cases of COVID-19 in the area. As of April 23 at 8 a.m., indoor and outdoor gatherings will be limited to five people. Social events, faith gatherings, sports events, and in-person art performances will not be permitted. Indoor fitness and recreation facilities will be closed, and restaurants will be closed to seated service. All restrictions will remain in place until at least May 20.

Additionally, certain schools will close to students and move to at-home learning for a two-week period. Schools that remain open will have mandatory mask measures in place for all students starting April 26.
