Attending In-Person Meetings

Due to resourcing challenges as a result of the impacts of COVID-19 cases in the community, including employee exposures and provincially mandated self-isolation and testing requirements, municipal service standards are expected to be impacted. This includes the timing, location and staffing of municipal meetings, including Regional Council, standing committees, boards and commissions. Out of an abundance of caution, meetings will take place virtually when possible. Check the agenda for each meeting, once available, to confirm the timing and location. For the most up-to-date information on municipal impacts as a result of COVID-19, visit halifax.ca/coronavirus.

Some meetings are anticipated to resume in an in-person format in conjunction with Phase 3 of the Government of Nova Scotia's reopening plan. More information about Phase 3 is available online.

How will I know if a meeting is in-person or virtual?
