Today, July 11, Nova Scotia is reporting four new cases of COVID-19 and seven recoveries.
The cases are in Central Zone. One is related to travel and three are under investigation.
All four health zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread.
“Our daily case numbers are staying low, a result of Nova Scotians’ hard work to keep this virus at bay. We must continue to follow public health protocols as restrictions loosen and we welcome people to our province,” said Premier Iain Rankin. “Continuing to get tested, getting vaccinated and following the public health measures will help make sure we all have a great summer.”
As of today, Nova Scotia has 36 active cases of COVID-19. Of those, two people are in hospital COVID-19 units, including one in ICU.
On July 10, Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 2,483 tests.
“The hard work of Nova Scotians is paying off as we continue to see low case numbers,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “The higher our vaccination numbers climb, the sooner we can safely relax some of our public health measures and loosen more restrictions. If you haven’t had your vaccine yet, please book your appointment as soon as you can.”
Since April 1, there have been 4,128 positive COVID-19 cases and 26 deaths. Cases range in age from under 10 to over 90. There are 4,066 resolved cases. Cumulative cases may change as data is updated in Panorama.
