Front desk completely misunderstood guidelines for isolation.
We arrived in Halifax (from Ottawa - outside the Atlantic Bubble) to move our daughter there for school in the fall.
We were fully aware that guidelines state we must isolate “for 14 days or the length of our stay”. We filled out (and submitted on-line) the forms with the province explaining our plan to deliver a van load of things to our daughter, stay one night at a hotel and leave the province in the morning. Effectively, being in NS for less than 24 hours, and having contact with almost no one except ourselves.
The move went smoothly, but when it came time to check into the Atlantica (which we had reserved in advance), the front clerk refused to let us check in unless we agreed to isolate with them for a full 14 days!
We explained that we were ready to check in and not leave the room until morning as we were exhausted from the early morning trip and day of moving and that we would leave the province first thing in the morning.
We explained that the province had approved our isolation plan. We had our passes to prove it.
Nope, he would not let us check-in. That left us homeless in a city/province where we were supposed to be in isolation. I had committed “in writing”, that we would only be at my daughters apartment or the Atlantica, to isolate.
So, although exhausted, we had to drive 6 hours to my fathers house in Québec because the clerk at the Atlantica did not understand the rules.
