No new COVID-19 cases in Nova Scotia as active total drops to 2

Nova Scotia is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 for the third day in a row.

The number of active cases is down to two Thursday, and no one is in hospital due to the virus.

Labs with the Nova Scotia Health Authority completed 1,008 tests on Wednesday.

The last positive case was confirmed Sunday, which is a home-care nurse in the central zone who previously tested positive for the virus.

Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health, Dr. Robert Strang, said Wednesday the individual had tested positive for COVID-19 in early May and had recovered.

He said the individual's most recent test results were inconclusive, but it was being treated as a new positive case.

It's unclear how the nurse may have been possibly infected.

To date, there have been 1,086 positive cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia and 65 deaths.
