Five cases of COVID-19 are announced in Nova Scotia today (Monday, Jan. 11).

Two of the new cases are in Nova Scotia Health’s Central Zone and are related to travel outside of Atlantic Canada — one of the cases is a student at Dalhousie University who lives off campus.

The third case is in the Western Zone and is related to travel outside of Atlantic Canada — that person is a student at Acadia University who lives on campus.

The fourth and fifth cases are in the Northern Zone — one is related to travel outside of Atlantic Canada, and the other is a close contact of a previously reported case.

All of the travellers were self-isolating as required.
