HMCS Oriole

HMCS Oriole calling in to Shelburne, N.S. as part of Centennial Atlantic Canada Tour
August 1, 2021– Department of National Defence / Royal Canadian Navy
HMCS Oriole, the sail training vessel of the Royal Canadian Navy will be in Shelburne, N.S. supporting the Centennial Cup Yacht Races from Aug 6 - 9, 2021.
This year marks an exceptional time for HMCS Oriole as the ship celebrates its 100th anniversary. Looking to share this experience with Canadians, HMCS Oriole is sailing throughout Atlantic Canada making several port visits. At each stop, the public is welcome to come see the ship, meet the crew and share any stories they may have about sailing with Oriole. The ship will be at anchor and supporting race activities but viewable to the public from shore.
Oriole was built for the Gooderham family in 1921 and launched on June 4 the same year, in Ontario. During the Second World War, the ship was chartered by the Navy and eventually moved to Halifax as a training vessel, proving highly valuable in this role. Oriole was commissioned into the Navy in 1952 and moved to the west coast where the ship would spend the next 60 years. In 2017, Oriole sailed around through the Panama Canal and back to Halifax where it is now based.

Potential Drought Season

In light of the potential for another drought season, we would like the public to start preparing now by conserving water and thinking of ways to be more self-sufficient in water collection.

Shelburne County East Emergency Management will continue to explore options for additional supports for sustainable access to water in our communities. As in previous years, public water collection opportunities will be made available as the need arises. Please check regularly for updates at https://www.facebook.com/shelburneemo.
We recognize that there are vulnerable individuals/households in our communities that do not have the means to address the issue on their own. We are committed to continuing to help them within reason and this assistance will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Drought conditions are expected to continue annually and may begin earlier and/last longer each year. There are some proactive activities you can do around your home to conserve water and prepare for a water shortage. Everyone is encouraged to collect rainwater by capturing downspout run off or large container collection.
If you are experiencing a low or dry well it is important to report this issue. Reporting water shortages is critical for tracking, identifying and providing community solutions.

AstraZeneca Update

Nova Scotia will resume the use of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine for second doses only, effective today, June 1.
The decision comes after the National Advisory Committee on Immunization updated its guidance on the interchangeability of COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by Health Canada.
Nova Scotians will have more options when it comes to receiving their second dose:
-- anyone who has received a first dose of Pfizer or Moderna can now choose a second dose of either Pfizer or Moderna
-- anyone who has received a first dose of AstraZeneca can now receive a second dose of AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna
As part of the province's plan to reduce the second-dose interval, anyone who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine will receive a notice by email to reschedule their second dose appointment. Notices will be issued starting this week and will continue to be sent out over the coming weeks.
---
La Nouvelle-Écosse reprend l'utilisation du vaccin contre la COVID-19 d'AstraZeneca pour les secondes doses seulement, et ce, à compter d'aujourd'hui, le 1er juin.
La décision intervient après que le Comité consultatif national de l'immunisation a mis à jour ses directives sur l'interchangeabilité des vaccins contre la COVID-19 homologués par Santé Canada.
Les Néo-Écossais et Néo-Écossaises auront donc plus de choix quant à leur seconde dose.
-- Toute personne qui a reçu une première dose du vaccin de Pfizer ou de Moderna peut désormais obtenir une seconde dose soit du vaccin de Pfizer, soit du vaccin de Moderna.
-- Toute personne qui a reçu une première dose du vaccin d'AstraZeneca peut désormais obtenir une seconde dose du vaccin d'AstraZeneca, de Pfizer ou de Moderna.
Dans le cadre du plan du gouvernement provincial visant à réduire la période entre les deux doses, toute personne qui a reçu une première dose du vaccin d'AstraZeneca recevra un avis par courriel pour changer la date de son rendez-vous pour recevoir sa seconde dose.

Des avis seront envoyés à compter de cette semaine et continueront d'être émis au cours des prochaines semaines.
