Nova Scotia Self Isolation and the Fixed Roof Accommodation Act

  If it is on Facebook, it must be true? Well, the above was an informational Meme found On Facebook and kinda spells out the implications of what a 14 day Quarantine means.  The Nova Scotia Government have a fairly good  COVID-19 Website that provides some hot topic sub links. The "Symptoms and Testing" spells out the 14 day self Isolation requirement. The provincial government is taking things very seriously as spelled out in our earlier Blog " CKBW Social Isolation made easy ", back in August 04.  Fixed Roof Accommodation Act spells out that 28 days or less is considered a "Short Term Accommodation" and to offer these short term accommodations, the provider needs to have been granted a license.

BILL NO. 101 - Tourist Accommodations Registration Act

2020 - South of the 49th Parallel - US of A

  The first polls will close at 6 p.m. Eastern time and with luck the world will sleep at peace, the world will not end. It is expected that the counting of ballots will result in an uneventful resolution to the 2020 Election for the US of A.

South Shore Nova Scotia is home to many a "Summer House" and has always received our US of A neighbours with open arms, regardless of who leads the country. So, in a nut shell, for South Shore, Welshtown Haven, an All Season, Weekly Rental Vacation House.... We look forward in continuing to offer our humble accommodation to all, regardless of who wins tonight.
