Nova Scotia health officials reported no new cases of the coronavirus on Monday — the second time the province hasn’t reported a daily increase since the start of 2021.

The province said 25 cases remain active.

“I want to thank all Nova Scotians for their hard work in keeping our case numbers low,” said Premier Stephen McNeil in a news release.

McNeil also reminded residents that Public Health protocols still need to be followed.

“We still have provincewide restrictions in place, and we will be providing an update on them by the end of the week. Let’s continue to protect the health of each other,” he said.
