Statement from Dr. Strang on Irving Shipbuilding COVID19 exception

FALL RIVER: The following is a statement from Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health.
“There have been a number of questions and concerns about an exception granted by Public Health to Irving Shipbuilding for travel to the U.S. I did give an exception in June with very tight restrictions, but now after concerns have been raised, I have revoked that exception and made clear there will be no further company travel to or from the U. S.

“I have also ordered the individuals be sent home to isolate for 14 days and asked for assurances that COVID testing has been completed.”
