Nova Scotia reported four new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday and seven recoveries.

All of the new cases are in the central health zone — one is related to travel and three are under investigation.

A news release from the province said all four health zones are being monitored for signs of community spread.

Two people have been hospitalized with the virus, including one in intensive care.

Nova Scotia Health labs completed 2,483 COVID-19 tests on Saturday.

There are 36 active cases of the virus in the province.

Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health, said the hard work of Nova Scotians is reflected by the low case numbers. He continued to urge people get vaccinated.

"The higher our vaccination numbers climb, the sooner we can safely relax some of our public health measures and loosen more restrictions," Strang said in the release.
