Together, we can keep working through this safely.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nova Scotians have been following public health protocols to keep each other safe. As the number of cases across the rest of the country and around the world rises, we must continue to do what we know works: maintain social distance, wear masks, wash our hands frequently with soap and water, sanitize surfaces, and stay home when we’re feeling sick. On our website, you’ll find lots of resources for your workplace to serve as helpful reminders that we cannot become complacent. Learn about best practices for your industry, share our new videos and radio ads, order or download posters, and access other free materials to show your appreciation for all those who are working safely together through the pandemic.
