Daily Public Health Check-in


Help protect yourself and others while you’re self-isolating.

You’re legally required to self-isolate if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been told by Public Health that you’re a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case or may have been exposed to COVID-19 and need to self-isolate.

During your self-isolation, you need to complete a daily check-in with Public Health. It’s important that you complete your check-in every day so Public Health can monitor your health and support you while you’re self-isolating.

Register for daily check-ins

You can register for the Daily Public Health Check-in to complete your check-ins online. You need to check-in each day until your isolation end date.

For those who have tested positive for COVID-19, see here for more information: Information for people who have tested positive for COVID-19 | Nova Scotia Health Authority (nshealth.ca)

  • Note: Day 1 of self-isolation is the first day of your symptom onset or test date (if no symptoms). For example, if your symptoms started or you were tested on December 1, your Day 1 would be December 2; Day 10 would be December 11.

For those who are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, see here for more information: Information for COVID-19 Close Contacts | Nova Scotia Health Authority (nshealth.ca)

  • Note: Day 1 of self-isolation is the first day following your last exposure date. For example, if your last exposure was on December 1, your Day 1 would be December 2; Day 7 would be December 8; and Day 14 would be December 15.
