Nova Scotia and New Brunswick health officials say testing for the coronavirus will resume throughout the holiday season.
In New Brunswick, assessment centres will remain open during the holidays, including Christmas Day, when hours may be reduced, according to N.B. Health.
As of Wednesday, 148,195 tests have been conducted in New Brunswick.
In Nova Scotia, all primary assessment centers within the central zone are open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The NSHA also said that individuals can be tested on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. The only exception is at Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital. That site will be closed for COVID-19 testing on Dec 24, 25, 28 and Jan. 1st, but there are other options for testing within the zone.
Asymptomatic testing will also continue into January, according to the province. Nova Scotians can book an appointment for an asymptomatic test provincewide.
In a Wednesday email, Public Health told Global News there will be more rapid testing pop-up sites open during the holidays.
On Wednesday, a rapid testing site is operating at the Halifax Central Library on Spring Garden Road. This site will run again next week, Dec. 29 and 30.
