On Monday, Nova Scotia has reported seven new cases of COVID-19. Four of those cases were reported in the central health zone, two were reported in the western zone, and one was reported in the northern zone.
Nova Scotia Health labs completed a total of 7,592 tests on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Over the weekend, four people have recovered from the virus while one person remained in the intensive care.
Nova Scotia reported that 76.7 percent of its residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 66.9 percent have two doses. Nova Scotia Health is trying to improve vaccine accessibility by hosting drop-in clinics.
Nova Scotia is currently in Phase 4 of its reopening plan, which means that, although being close to opening, the province is still enforcing some rules to stop COVID-19 from spreading.
“Enforcement of these restrictions remains an important part of the overall strategy to curb the pandemic,” a release from Halifax police said.
