Effective June 5, most businesses required to close under the public health order can reopen!
As a business owner/manager in Nova Scotia, we know you’re working hard to reactivate your business to protect the health and safety of customers, staff, and the general public. To help guide you to the solution that works best for your business, we’ve assembled a series of resources from national and provincial organizations that will give you the tools you need to move forward in the new COVID-19 reality. For more information on government support, advocacy and programs, visit our COVID-19 Resource Page.
An excellent place to begin are with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety free tip sheets (linked in the first block below). These documents provide health and safety tips for both workers and employers and are specific to each industry or sector. Additional resources from both public and private sector organizations are included to give you as much guidance as possible. All of the resources assembled here have been vetted by Chamber staff and in many cases are being referenced as best practices by federal and/or provincial public health officials.
Industry associations can submit their plans to government for approval at NSEconomy@novascotia.ca.
Questions on protocols, re-opening plans, and current health guidelines can also be sent to this email address.
