“This week, we broke the million-mark on lab-based testing since the start of the pandemic in March 2020,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health.
“Testing has been critical in the fight against this virus. I want to thank Nova Scotians who stepped up time and time again to get tested and the many people who worked long and hard to establish and operate our testing program.”
“While we work toward our minimum target of 75 per cent of Nova Scotians fully vaccinated, keep getting tested, especially if you have symptoms, and please, get your vaccine.” said Dr. Strang.
