Today, Saturday November 28, Nova Scotia is reporting 14 new COVID-19 cases.
Twelve of the cases are in the Central Zone, one case in the Western Zone and another in the Northern Zone. The province currently has 125 active cases.
“Black Friday weekend usually draws crowds from across the province to the Halifax area to shop, but that must change this year,” said Premier Stephen McNeil.
“I want to remind all Nova Scotians that we are asking you to avoid non-essential travel in and out of western and central HRM and parts of Hants County. If you are doing some shopping this weekend, it’s best to stay close to home and buy local. You’ll be supporting the businesspeople in your community and doing your part to slow the spread of COVID-19.”
Six hundred seventy tests were administered at the rapid-testing pop-up site in Dartmouth yesterday and three positive results were found. These cases were told to self-isolate and referred for standard testing.
