Breweries and distilleries in Nova Scotia are making world class beer, wine, cider and spirits with unique local ingredients from every region of the province. Nova Scotia has been winning awards at the highest level with homemade local recipes that are now enjoyed across the world.

In March, our government also adjusted regulations to allow home alcohol delivery with food orders to support local restaurants across the province – which has since been extended permanently. As we continue our efforts to fight COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to think, shop and buy local in Nova Scotia.

As of today, July 7, Nova Scotia has four active cases of COVID-19. No new cases were identified on Monday, July 6.

The QEII Health Sciences Centre's microbiology lab completed 291 Nova Scotia tests on July 6 and is operating 24-hours.

There are no licensed long-term care homes in Nova Scotia with active cases of COVID-19. As of Monday, July 6, the COVID-19 outbreak at Northwood's Halifax campus is considered resolved after completing 28 days with no active cases.

To date, Nova Scotia has 55,428 negative test results, 1,065 positive COVID-19 cases, 63 deaths and four active COVID-19 cases. Cases range in age from under 10 to over 90. Nine-hundred and ninety-eight cases are now resolved. Two people are currently in hospital. Both patients' COVID-19 infections are considered resolved but they are being treated in hospital. Cases have been identified in all parts of the province. Cumulative cases by zone may change as data is updated in Panorama.

If you have any one of the following symptoms, visit 811.novascotia.ca to determine if you should call 811 for further assessment:

When a new case of COVID-19 is confirmed, public health works to identify and test people who may have come in close contact with that person. Those individuals who have been confirmed are being directed to self-isolate at home, away from the public, for 14 days.

Anyone who has travelled outside of Atlantic Canada must self-isolate for 14 days. As always, any Nova Scotian who develops symptoms of acute respiratory illness should limit their contact with others until they feel better.

It remains important for Nova Scotians to strictly adhere to the public health order and directives - practise good hand washing and other hygiene steps, maintain a physical distance when and where required, and wearing a non-medical mask is strongly recommended when physical distancing is difficult.

As of July 3, interprovincial travel within Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador, without the requirement to self-isolate for permanent Atlantic Canadian residents, is permitted. All public health directives of each province must be followed. Under Nova Scotia's Health Protection Act order, visitors from other Canadian provinces and territories must self-isolate for 14 days.
