One new case of COVID-19 is announced in Nova Scotia today (Monday, Feb. 15).

The case is in Nova Scotia Health’s Central Zone and is related to travel outside Atlantic Canada.

There are now 10 known active cases in the province. One person remains in hospital with the disease, and that person is in ICU.

The active cases are distributed as follows:

• 5 in the Halifax Peninsula / Chebucto Community Health Network in the Central Zone
• 1 in the Dartmouth/ Southeastern Community Health Network in the Central Zone
• 1 at some other unknown (to me) location in the Central Zone
• 1 in the Colchester/ East Hants Community Health Network in the Northern Zone
• 1 in the Inverness, Victoria, and Richmond Community Health Network in the Eastern Zone
• 1 in the Annapolis and Kings Community Health Network in the Western Zone

Nova Scotia Health labs conducted 1,620 tests yesterday.

Here are the new daily cases and seven-day rolling average (today at 1.1) since the start of the second wave (Oct. 1):

  1. “The case is in Nova Scotia Health’s Central Zone and is related to travel outside Atlantic Canada”.
    As almost all the cases reported in Nova Scotia are “related to travel outside Atlantic Canada”, either by someone who has entered Nova Scotia or someone who has been in touch with someone who has entered Nova Scotia, is Public Health able to provide more specifics on where they came from, how they entered, whether they were tested on entry, and whether their quarantine period was “supervised” at least by the occasional visit or phone call? This would perhaps allow Nova Scotians a clearer sense as to the efficacy of Public Health’s efforts..COVID-19, especially its more infectious variants, must be stopped by catching all potential spreaders before they have a chance to infect others..
