The municipality’s Emergency Management Division is working very closely with provincial partners at Health and Wellness and NS EMO to respond to and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.
As part of the collective effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, municipal staff who can work from home have been directed to do so. This is part of an overall public health strategy to help safeguard the health of others, particularly the most vulnerable in our communities, by reducing the number of our employees in the workplace where possible while still maintaining operations.
Exercising protective measures such as regular, proper hand washing and maintaining physical distancing will help defend against illness — as well as reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Information regarding municipal programs and services, as well as provincial health messages, will be shared via Twitter @hfxgov, public service announcements and our website.
