The NS resort to shutting temporarily due to rise in covid cases: 

A famous resort on Nova Scotia’s South Shore has declared it will shut until the end of the month as COVID-19 case totals persist to climb.

Nova Scotia has been registering high COVID-19 case numbers over the previous few weeks, caused by the highly contagious Omicron variant.

In an Instagram post-Sunday, White Point Resort stated some of its workers have tested positive for the virus “after nearly two years of persistent effort and sacrifice.” Source – cbc.ca

“We are now at the moment where we sense it is required to do our part to help slow the spread of Covid-19 and close the property yet again,” the post stated. Source – cbc.ca

The famous NS resort announces the temporary closing due to the climbing covid cases

The property had closed down in March 2020 just as the pandemic was getting underway. It restarted in June of that year, but only to citizens of the four Atlantic regions — or the so-called Atlantic bubble.

That policy lured criticism the following summer when completely vaccinated Canadians were permitted to come to Nova Scotia without any self-isolation needs. The resort quickly changed its judgment and once again started welcoming Canadians from outside the Atlantic province.

The post stated the resort will shut Monday and remain that way until at least Jan. 31, as it awaits more information from Premier Tim Houston and Dr Robert Strang, the region’s chief medical officer of health.

“We would like to thank you all for your ongoing support, and while this is not how we wanted to begin 2022, we feel it to be the securest thing to do for all of us,” the post stated. Source – cbc.ca
