Nova Scotia reported 40 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, bringing the number of active cases to 248.

Thirty-four of the new cases are in the central zone, four are in the western zone and two are in the northern zone. The province no longer provides information about the source of infections, such as whether newly reported cases are close contacts of previously reported cases, under investigation or related to travel.

Seventeen people are in hospital with COVID-19, including four in intensive care.

As of Tuesday, 75.4 per cent of Nova Scotians are fully vaccinated.

Labs in the province processed 3,603 COVID-19 tests on Monday.

Premier Tim Houston and Dr. Robert Strang, the chief medical officer of health, will hold a briefing about COVID-19 on Wednesday at 3 p.m. AT. CBC Nova Scotia will live stream the update.
