One new case of COVID-19 was reported in Nova Scotia Sunday, giving the province nine active cases.

The new case is in the eastern zone and connected to travel outside Atlantic Canada. The person is self-isolating, Nova Scotia's health authority said Sunday.

"This Valentine's Day, let's show each other love by following the Public Health protocols put in place to keep each other safe," said Premier Stephen McNeil. "COVID-19 is still here and we can't let our guard down."

The health authority did 1,429 tests Saturday.

"Nova Scotians have shown their love for their families, friends and communities from the day this pandemic started," said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health.

"The journey is not over yet. We need to stay the course of protecting each other with all our Public Health measures, including regular testing even if you don't feel sick."
