Updated Directive on Travel and Self-isolation During COVID-19

07 Jul 2020

Colleagues:

Effective 12am, July 3, 2020, the CAO directive dated March 13, 2020 requiring mandatory self-isolation for travel outside of Nova Scotia is no longer in effect.

Until further notice, all HRM employees must adhere to the current Public Health directives regarding travel and self-isolation, if required.

If you have travelled outside of the Atlantic provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI and Newfoundland/Labrador) and arrived home after 12am, July 3, 2020 you are required to self-isolate for 14 calendar days.

Please apply the below as per your situation:

  1. If the nature of your job allows you to work from home (WFH), and you have no symptoms, you are expected to notify your supervisor and work from home, and you will be paid REG time.
  1. If the nature of your job allows you to work from home but you are feeling sick, you will notify your supervisor you can’t work because you are sick. You will be paid through Sick Leave (SL), where available, until you are well enough to return to work.
  1. If your job does not allow you to WFH:
    1. and you travel outside of Atlantic Canada, you still must self-isolate for 14 days and use leave banks to cover this time. If, during or after the 14 days, you become sick, please contact your supervisor and you will be paid using Sick Leave (SL) where available.
    2. when requesting time off to travel outside of Atlantic Canada, you are required to request sufficient time off to cover your travel period plus your self-isolation period.

Please direct any questions or concerns you may have to your supervisor.

Many thanks,

Kelly
A/CAO
