COVID-19 Update – April 23, 2021

Today the Province announced that they would be making changes to the Nova Scotia Public Health Regulations that will affect the members of Row Nova Scotia. These changes will come into effect 8:00 am Friday April 23, 2021 and be in place until at least Wednesday, May 20. For now, this means that all Rowing Clubs within HRM and Hubbards areas will be closed to all in-person rowing activities as outlined below.

We continue to work with Sport Nova Scotia and the Province of Nova Scotia to ensure that we do our best to limit the spread of COVID-19, we keep our members safe, and advocate in the best interest of rowing the province.  Stay safe and hope to see you back at the rowing clubs as soon as restrictions allow.

Please read the information below carefully, as regulations differ by location.

Within HRM & Hubbards 

Sports practices and training, and arts and culture rehearsals are no longer permitted. This includes games, competitions, and tournaments, and in-person performances. This also includes school sports and school gym rentals.

Indoor fitness facilities like gyms and yoga studios, and sport and recreation facilities like pools, arenas, tennis courts and large multipurpose recreation facilities will also be closed. Outdoor fitness and recreation businesses can operate with 25 people and physical distance. We will provide more clarity as it becomes available.

People should avoid traveling into and out of HRM and Hubbards unless it is absolutely necessary. Necessary travel includes school, work, and medical appointments. Shopping, social events, sport practices/games, and family visits are not considered necessary.

Outside of HRM & Hubbards  

Gathering limits without social distancing for participants and officials in organized performing arts and sports (recreational, amateur and professional) can gather in groups of up to 75 people without social distancing for rehearsals, performances, practices, and games within their regular competitive schedule. Spectators are permitted at 50 percent of the venue’s capacity up to 100 indoor and 150 outdoor.

Please note that tournaments and competitions (outside HRM and Hubbards) are only permitted when playing against teams or participants that would play each other during their regular competitive schedule. Tournaments or competitions that bring together people who do not regularly play one another (including try-it clinics) are not permitted.
