From the Press Release:
“By following the new restrictions in the greater Halifax area, we are working together to contain the spread of the virus,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “And wherever you live in the province, we all have a role to play, by limiting non-essential travel and following all the protocols -- limit social contacts, practice social distancing, wear a mask and wash your hands. This is how we will flatten the curve.”

There were 540 tests administered at the rapid-testing pop-up site in Dartmouth yesterday and one positive result. The individual was directed to self-isolate and has been referred for a standard test.

“No matter where you live in Nova Scotia, it is important to follow all public health measures,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “While the majority of the cases are in the Central Zone, COVID-19 can easily find its way into other parts of the province. We must all remain vigilant and continue working to limit spread within, and beyond, Halifax.”

Note: Due to technical difficulties, the website will not be updated today.

Follow-up testing recently occurred at the Parkland Saint John complex in Saint John. Tests processed at the microbiology laboratory indicate six new positive cases for a total of 15 confirmed cases (10 residents and five employees). The next round of mass testing will occur over a two-day period starting Monday.

Members of the PROMT (Provincial Rapid Outbreak Management Team) remain on site at Parkland Saint John, providing support for residents and the facility’s clinical care team. Support includes testing and working in collaboration with the facility’s infection prevention control specialist to strengthen infection control measures.
