“What a great way to begin summer with no new cases being reported today,” said Premier Iain Rankin in a press release.

“The epidemiology is headed in the right direction, but in order for us to continue to see low to no new cases, we must all follow the public health measures and get fully vaccinated as soon as we can. And of course, remember to get tested.”

According to the province, there is limited community spread in Central Zone. Eastern, Northern and Western Zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread.
