From the Press Release:
“Happy Canada Day. This year looks different because of COVID-19, but I know each of you will find unique ways to celebrate this province and the country we live in,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “However you celebrate this great country today, be safe. The new cases this week show that COVID-19 is still very much here. So please continue to follow public health directives and advice, look out for your fellow Nova Scotians and do all you can to keep COVID-19 under control.”

“I hope everyone is able to have a safe and relaxing Canada Day but that you keep your guard up. While this virus has changed many of our traditions, Nova Scotians have shown they’re willing to do what is necessary to help stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Robert Strang, chief medical officer of health for Nova Scotia. “I ask everyone to continue to practice good hand washing, maintain a physical distance when and where required and wear a non-medical mask when physical distancing is difficult.”
