Nova Scotia COVID Count Doubles to Six

As of today, Nova Scotia has six active cases of COVID-19 doubling the count from Friday. 

The three new cases are all related to travel outside Atlantic Canada. Two are in the Central Zone where the individuals have been self-isolating, as required. The other case, a Nova Scotia resident in the Eastern Zone, was diagnosed and recovered in another province.

Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 955 Nova Scotia tests yesterday, bring the provincial total to  108,287 negative test results, 1,100 positive cases, and 65 deaths. 

No one is currently in hospital. One thousand and twenty-nine cases are now resolved.

Visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to do a self-assessment if, in the past 48 hours, you have had or you are currently experiencing fever (i.e. chills/sweats) or a new or worsening cough, or if you have two or more of the following symptoms: sore throat, runny nose/ nasal congestion, headache, or shortness of breath.

Call 811 if you cannot access the online self-assessment or if you wish to speak with a nurse about your symptoms.
