Nova Scotia is opening its border with Newfoundland and Labrador and easing other COVID-19 restrictions on Wednesday morning.

Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador no longer need to complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form or self-isolate when they arrive in Nova Scotia, but must continue to follow public health measures during their stay.

Government says malls, retail businesses and fitness facilities can return to operating at full capacity with physical distancing as of 8 a.m. on April 7.

In addition, Arts and culture rehearsals and performances, along with sports practices, training and games can have 75 people and spectators are permitted, except when these events are held at schools.
