There were no new positive cases of COVID-19 again in Nova Scotia in testing done Monday.

In a news release Tuesday, the Health Department said the QEII Health Sciences Centre's microbiology lab completed 307 Nova Scotia tests. 

"We have gone two weeks without a new case of COVID-19 and that is because of the efforts of Nova Scotians," said Premier Stephen McNeil. "But we can't get complacent. Please continue to follow the public health measures and stay safe. Please contact 811 if you have symptoms."

To date, Nova Scotia has 51,530 negative test results, 1,061 positive COVID-19 cases and 63 deaths. There are no active COVID-19 cases in the province. 

 Nine-hundred and ninety-eight cases are now resolved. Two people are in hospital, one of those in ICU. Both patients' COVID-19 infections are considered resolved but they are being treated in hospital for other reasons.
