NS has 0 new deaths today. 53/62 (85%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/62 (92%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities have reported cases, none have an active case). Yesterday, 543 tests were completed with 0 new cases reported. 99.91% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. NS is now at 15 days in a row with no deaths and just 2 new cases overall in the last 14 days, none in the last 10 days. There are just 2 active cases in NS, all outside LTC. Northwood is at 22 days with no new cases.

**With 1 new recovery but still 2 in hospital, it can only mean 1 of 2 things. Either the active case(s) have nothing to do with those in hospital, and those in hospital are classed as recovered but still listed as in hospital since its COVID related, or the new recovery is one of the hospital patients who is now recovered officially from COVID but still not well enough overall to be released from hospital.

From the Press Release:
“Today marks our tenth day of no new cases of COVID-19 and I’m very encouraged by our progress. We’ve achieved this because Nova Scotians have taken this virus seriously and followed public health protocols and advice,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “Please enjoy this beautiful weather and time with your friends and family responsibly. While we’ve been able to loosen restrictions, it is important that everyone remains vigilant.”
