There are no new COVID-19 cases being reported in Nova Scotia on Sunday. The total amount of active cases in the province remains at three.

On Saturday, the Nova Scotia Health Authority labs completed 520 Nova Scotia tests.

To date, there are 1,089 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia, with 1,021 cases considered resolved and 65 people have died.

The province has had 97,221 negative test results.

There is still one person in hospital in the intensive care unit, as a result of COVID-19.

The provincial state of emergency, which was first declared on March 22, has once again been extended to Oct. 18, unless government terminates or extends it. 


There are cases confirmed across the province, but most have been identified in the central zone, which contains the Halifax Regional Municipality.
