One person is now hospitalized in ICU as a result of the virus, according to Public Health.

To date, Nova Scotia has 101,750 negative test results, 1,092 positive COVID-19 cases and 65 deaths.

"It's a reminder that we must not become complacent simply because we've gone long stretches with very few or no cases here in Nova Scotia", Strang said.

Nova Scotia reported no new cases of the coronavirus on Thursday, and said only three cases remain active in the province.

Chief medical officer of health Dr. Robert Strang added that's what's happened in New Brunswick is an important reminder that COVID-19 is still here and it can quickly "rear its head".

Six of the new cases were in the Campbellton region in the north of the province, involving people ranging in age from their 30s to their 60s.

People can expect the results to be ready within 36 to 60 hours, depending on the volume of tests that Nova Scotia Health's lab is processing on a given day.

He said the outbreaks do not pose an increased risk to Nova Scotians at this time because there is no evidence of community spread.

P.E.I. had no new cases reported as of Tuesday. As of Thursday, the total number of active cases in the province is 89. Three new cases were identified Saturday in Nova Scotia Health's central zone, which includes the Halifax area, Eastern Shore, and West Hants. Two of the cases are related to travel outside Canada, and the third case is a close contact, the department of Health and Wellness said in a news release.

It also offers advice, like monitoring for symptoms, taking the online self-assessment if they begin to feel unwell, and more information about what to do next.

Its use was expanded to New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, Manitoba and Saskatchewan before Nova Scotia signed up.
