officials say 20 new cases were identified on Monday, most of them connected to travel or a known case. A handful of cases remains under investigation. To date, there have been 57-hundred and 63 negative results.

The province’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Robert Strang says it is now more important than ever to adhere to directives aimed at limiting the spread of the virus.

Strang says if you have to go shopping, have one person from the household go. Also, if you are required to self isolate, you must stay the full 14 days at home.

Strang says it’s also been hearing reports of scams and misinformation related to the virus.

Strang says the best entryway for information on the coronavirus can be found on the provincial government’s web site at novascotia.ca/coronavirus
