HALIFAX -- Nova Scotia will be easing some public health restrictions around COVID-19 beginning Friday, including reopening of parks and trails, and allowing fishing and gardening.

"We know that getting outdoors for recreation is important for people's physical and mental health," said Premier Stephen McNeil. "That's why we are easing some restrictions, while still keeping the majority of our public health directives in place to continue fighting the virus. But I need to be clear: if we see an increase in positive cases or people not continuing to adhere to all the public health measures, the restrictions will return."

As of Friday, the following restrictions have been lifted, providing physical distancing rules of keeping two metres apart and not gathering in groups of more than five remain.
