Provincial health officials say six new cases of COVID-19 were identified in the province on Friday. That raises the total number of cases in Nova Scotia to 21, with nine confirmed cases and 12 presumptive. The six new cases are all travel related.
The COVID-19 cases are located across the province. The 21 affected Nova Scotians range in age from their late-teens to mid-70’s.
Public Health has been in contact with the 21 patients and are working to identify others who may have come in close contact with them.
As of today, dentists can no longer practice dentistry in their offices unless it is deemed necessary to perform emergency procedures in the best interest of the patient’s health.
Anyone who has travelled outside of Canada must self isolate for 14 days when they return to Nova Scotia.
