Provincial Health and Wellness Department officials have identified one new case of COVID-19.
The new case in the Nova Scotia Health Authority’s Central Zone is related to travel and the individual had been self-isolating since returning to the province as required.
Premier Stephen McNeil says while progress has been made in reducing the transmission of COVID-19, the reality is Nova Scotia will see more cases. He urged Nova Scotians to continue doing all they can to keep COVID-19 at bay by respecting the rules and following public health advice.
With the new infection, that raises the total number of cases to date to 1,062, 63 have died.
