From the Press Release:
"The past few months have been difficult for our province and it is good to see Nova Scotians starting to return to normal life," said Premier Stephen McNeil. As the weather returns, I encourage everyone to go out and enjoy all that the province has to offer. But we must continue to be vigilant and careful, and to follow the directives of Public Health."
