Premier Tim Houston and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, will provide an update on COVID-19 today.
The briefing, which is scheduled to start at 2 p.m., will be live streamed here.
The update comes as Nova Scotia grapples with a significant spike in cases. The province has reached an all-time high in new daily case counts several times in the past week, and yesterday was no exception, with 485 new cases reported Monday.
Two cases were reported Monday at the long-term care home Parkstone Enhanced Care in Clayton Park, and cases continue to be reported in connection with schools.
