COVID-19 Update November 24

On November 24, the Province announced further changes to Public Health Regulations related to COVID-19. These changes are applicable to the zone of Western and Central Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), which is defined as HRM from Hubbard’s to (and including) Porters Lake and the communities up to Elmsdale and Mount Uniacke/Hants County including businesses.

During this time period people residing in the impacted zone will not be permitted to travel outside the zone to take part in any sport activities. This would include anyone residing in the zone who may participate on a team/group that is outside the zone. For those living outside of the impacted zone, sport activities can continue while continuing to pay close attention to the public health guidelines. However, you should not leave your zone for a sport activity, so for example if you live in Cape Breton you should not travel to the South Shore for a sport activity. Complete information on the provincial zones can be found on the Nova Scotia government website.

A map of the impacted zone can be found here.

This means that the Photo O Score event in historic downtown Lunenburg will be switched to an open event that will be posted to the website and will be available for anyone to download and complete in their own time (when regulations allow).

Visit as many of the controls as possible in the time you set yourself (we suggest 45 minutes if you are running) and match the location to the photo codes on page 2 of the map. There are no physical controls hung out on the course. The map used is an open source OpenOrienteeringMap and the course will take you all over town!

The map will be posted on the OANS website and Facebook page on December 6. (A simpler version of the course will be made available as a download for the residents of Lunenburg on their town website.)

Unfortunately, the post-event Christmas social in the pub won't be possible this year.
