There are 93 active cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia.  Six people are in hospital, including three in ICU.

Premier Iain Rankin says the province will receive its largest shipment of vaccine in the coming weeks. He’s urging Nova Scotians to reschedule their appointment for an earlier date when they receive an email to change it.  He says the sooner Nova Scotians get fully vaccinated, the sooner the province can get back to normal.
