Coronavirus: Nova Scotia premier calls cases in schools a ‘wake up call’

Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil reported on Tuesday there were five new cases of COVID-19 in the province and said he understood people may be scared after two of the cases were reported among students in the province’s Central Zone, but he urged students and teachers that they are taking every precaution to keep schools safe. Chief medical officer of health Dr. Robert Strang also spoke about cases and urged people to not spread rumours, saying he has heard speculation and unsubstantiated claims that he said were stigmatizing towards families who may have been impacted by COVID-19, calling it inappropriate.
