“Another day where no new cases have been identified is a step in the right direction,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health.

“I worry that people will see no new cases and think they no longer need to follow the public health measures. Let’s work to keep our numbers low by remaining vigilant — wear a mask, limit social contacts, practise social distancing, adhere to the gathering limit, stay home if you feel unwell and wash your hands.”
