Message from Kings District RCMP - St. Patrick's Day

Kings District RCMP encouraging Kings Country not to leave it up to luck on St Patrick’s Day

March 16th, 2021, Kings County, NS… While St Patrick’s Day may be different for many this year some traditions may carry on.
Kings District RCMP and community partners would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable St Patrick’s Day. RCMP understand that people may be looking for a reason to celebrate after the majority of winter is now behind us.

Kings District RCMP will continue to utilize checkpoints, proactive patrols and calls for service to areas of concern in Kings County.

The following are just a few safety tips to help make sure everyone’s St Patrick’s Day is safe:
• Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin
• If choosing to use alcohol or cannabis, please designate a sober driver and give that person your keys
• If impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation so you are sure to get home safely
• If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to contact the police
• Stay hydrated and eat
• Do not leave your drink unattended
• Look out for your friends
• Watch for impaired pedestrians
• Consider staying home and celebrate in a group size within the Province of Nova Scotia’s regulations regarding Covid-19.
• Drive defensively and be aware of your surroundings.
Police want to emphasize to everyone the importance of sober driving to keep our roadways safe. Make your own luck by being a responsible driver this St. Patrick's Day. If you believe someone is driving in a way that is an immediate threat to public safety, please call 911. Include as much detail as possible, such as the location, direction of travel, vehicle and driver description and license plate number.

Kings District RCMP also encourages everyone to follow all Nova Scotia Public Health orders and, as well, town and Kings County bylaws.

COVID Testing - Annapolis Valley

Testing is Prevention:
In response to the recently announced case of the UK variant of COVID-19 in New Minas and a few positive cases in the Sackville area, where the source of infection is unknown, Public Health is increasing its testing capacity in these locations to provide more opportunities for the community to get tested.

Asymptomatic testing (testing people who show no symptoms of COVID-19) continues to be one of the tools that has helped limit the spread of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia. Testing is prevention.
As the UK variant is showing to be more contagious, it is important for Public Health to know where and how the new variant is spreading.
Public Health is encouraging everyone who lives in, or has travelled to, the communities between Wolfville and Berwick, and surrounding communities to get tested.

The Public Health Mobile Unit will be in New Minas and Canning for the next four days to provide an opportunity for community-based testing.
The Public Health Mobile Unit will be available for drop-in and pre-booked appointments at the following locations:

• New Minas Fire Department (6 Jones Rd., New Minas) Thursday, Feb. 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Canning Multi Complex (977 J Jordan Rd., Canning) Saturday, Feb. 27 and Sunday, Feb. 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
*Drop-in testing is based on capacity. It is recommended that you book your appointment online by visiting the self-assessment tool: https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en or call 811.

The Public Health Mobile Unit will also be setting up at the Sackville Heights Community Centre (45 Connolly Rd., Middle Sackville) starting Thursday, Feb. 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (drop-in testing only).

Nova Scotia Health has added additional testing capacity at the Primary Assessment Centres (PACs) in Berwick and Wolfville to make it easier for more people in these communities to get tested. Please visit http://www.nshealth.ca/coronavirus for more details on these locations.

Further dates and times to be announced.
