Nova Scotia Health advises of potential COVID-19 exposure in Bridgewater


More than a year after the COVID-19 pandemic started, public health is making what is believed to be its first Lunenburg County-situated potential virus exposure notification.

In a statement released March 25, Nova Scotia Health advised anyone who worked at or visited the Dominion Street location of Subway in Bridgewater on March 21 between 12 noon. and 1:15 p.m. "should immediately visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms."

Health officials noted people can also call 811 if they don't have online access or if they have other symptoms of concern.

All potential exposure notifications in the province can be found at http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures on the internet.

Bridgewater has two Subway shops. There is no potential exposure notification impacting the other eatery, in the Eastside Plaza mini-mall.

A Lunenburg restaurant and a Bridgewater college each independently advised of a potential exposures back in November 2020.
