“Spring is finally here in Nova Scotia and after a long winter, I know how much Nova Scotians want to spend time with family and friends outdoors,” said Premier Iain Rankin in a statement.

“We must remember that COVID-19 doesn’t take a break and neither should we. Enjoy the outdoors safely by following public health measures like sticking with your small close group and socially distancing when you need to.”

Four four of the new cases are in Central Zone. Two are related to travel outside of Atlantic Canada, and the other two are close contacts of previously-reported cases.
