Nova Scotia is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 and six recoveries today, July 15.

Premier Iain Rankin said that as the province entered Phase 4 of the reopening plan, "things are headed in the right direction as we report another day with no new cases."

Nova Scotia currently has 22 active cases of COVID-19, with two people in hospital, one of whom is in ICU.

Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, said, "Our case numbers are encouraging and our active cases are steadily declining. But we cannot become complacent. The COVID-19 variants spread more easily and much quicker. Our greatest line of defence is to ensure that everyone gets fully vaccinated with two doses of vaccine.”

Nova Scotians, with or without symptoms, can book a test at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en for primary assessment centres across the province. Individuals without symptoms are encouraged to use pop-up sites if they want to be tested.

People should call 811 if they cannot access the online self-assessment or wish to speak with a nurse about their symptoms.

Anyone with symptoms should immediately self-isolate and book a test.
