“I’m pretty unhappy and concerned that the current outbreaks have resulted in deaths and rising ICU numbers. Even if they are vaccinated, some people are more susceptible to the virus.

We can help them by getting immunized as well. This should be sufficient of an incentive for you to be vaccinated if you have not already.” When the COVID-19 display is updated on Tuesday, the two deaths linked to the long-term care home will be noted.

Since the last update on November 12, Nova Scotia has reported 99 new cases of COVID-19 and 109 recoveries.
