Covid-19 Mandates for Music Teachers in Nova Scotia

As of February 28, 2022, the government of Nova Scotia has removed the requirement for Proof of Vaccine for music lessons. Masks and social distancing where possible are strongly recommended.

As operators of their own businesses, all teachers registered with NSRMTA are free to set protocols within their own studios providing they meet the current Provincial Covid mandates for our sector. (See link below)

As Proof of Vaccine is no longer required by law, NSRMTA  does not have an official position on it.


The NSRMTA and its members remain fully committed to providing a safe environment by following Nova Scotia Public Health's COVID-19 guidance for child care settings and the arts sectors of Nova Scotia. All protocols are enforced regarding implementation of the health policies as laid out by Public Health and its Communicable Disease and Prevention protocols. These guidelines are followed by all NSRMTA members. However, if members would like to add further precautions to their own personal procedure, the NSRMTA will respect the need to do so
