Nova Scotia has reported four new cases of COVID-19, one probable case and nine recoveries on Thursday.

Three of the new cases are in Central Zone and one is in Northern Zone. All are related to travel.

The probable case is connected to Oceanview Education Centre in Glace Bay, and is “being treated as a lab-confirmed positive to ensure all precautions are taken.”

“Indeterminate test results do not provide a negative or positive. They may occur because someone previously had COVID-19 and the virus is still detectable in their system, or someone has been tested before the virus is fully detectable,” the province wrote in a news release.

“In these situations, public health conducts further assessment, including whether someone had or has symptoms or was recently exposed to someone with COVID-19, to inform how the case is treated.”

Public Health will be reaching out to close contacts of the positive and probable cases.

The school year wrapped up this week, but as a precaution, Public Health is recommending all students and staff at that school be tested for COVID-19.

The province currently has 51 active cases of COVID-19. Two people are in hospital.

Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 3,731 tests on Wednesday.
