NSCC's response to COVID-19: view updates

President's update for November 23, 2020

Keeping you and our communities safe

Nov. 23, 2020 – Don Bureaux

Good afternoon,

In Nova Scotia, we’ve so far been fortunate to have experienced one of the lowest rates of infection from the COVID-19 virus in all of North America. However, we do know what can happen when the virus spreads and we’ve all worked too hard to see the numbers of infection rise as they’ve been doing – the consequences are too severe.

Already we have seen news this afternoon around a temporary halt to the Atlantic bubble and the Premier urging citizens in the region to limit their travel. Also new this week are the special restrictions introduced and in effect today for both metro Halifax Regional Municipality and parts of Hants County.

As we head into the holiday season and the conclusion of a very challenging year, let’s ensure we end 2020 on a positive note by staying healthy. This is no time to let our guard down; it is time to resist those social gatherings so popular this time of year. Doing so is the gift that will keep on giving, showing just how much we care for each other and our communities.

I want to thank you all for your ongoing commitment to following the Public Health guidelines as well as the College’s safety measures. Please know because things have begun shifting suddenly and numbers have risen, I will be sharing more regular communications again to bring important information and reminders to your attention. If you have any questions or comments regarding the College’s measures, please reach out through .

Let’s all continue to work together to help slow the spread of COVID-19 within our communities.

Please don't forget to stay informed, stay safe and stay connected.

With gratitude,

Don Bureaux
