After the holidays, COVID-19 case reporting will resume Monday in Nova Scotia


The Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness is taking a break from reporting COVID-19 case numbers until the end of the holiday weekend, except in “unusual circumstances.”
Daily case reporting will resume on December 28, when the province will also provide a reporting schedule for the next holiday weekend.

Nova Scotia Health continues to report notices of potential exposure during the holidays, with several notifications coming on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Potential exhibition venues include various retail and grocery outlets in Halifax and Dartmouth last week, as well as three Air Canada flights on December 23.

The COVID-19 test is also available at some sites across the province during the holidays. A complete list of assessment centers can be found on the Nova Scotia Health website.

The last day of reported cases in Nova Scotia was December 24, with seven new cases of the coronavirus, including an employee at an assisted living facility in Dartmouth.

Some staff and residents were tested and all test results were negative, according to a press release on the Shannex website.

They will continue to self-isolate and will be tested again on December 31.
