HALIFAX — Nova Scotia is reporting eight new cases of COVID-19 and three new recoveries today.

The province says four of the cases were identified in the health region including Halifax and are close contacts of previously reported cases.

The other four infections were found in the eastern region of the province.

Officials say there is limited community spread in the central area, while monitoring continues for spread in the eastern, northern and western regions.

Premier Iain Rankin says despite the single-digit daily case counts the province has seen in recent days, residents need to keep their guard up against the virus.

Nova Scotia now has 52 active infections with two people in hospital due to the disease.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published July 3, 2021.
