    Last week I had to get Ross from Daycare because he had a cough and runny nose. It only took 7 hours for the result from the drive through test to come back. Today James woke up wit the same and when we went through the testing site there was a 2 hour wait. We are probably going to have to isolate for a few days waiting for this one to come back.

    Today's press release

    The province is reporting one probable case of COVID-19 involving a Dalhousie University student who has received indeterminate test results. The student recently returned from travel outside the Atlantic Bubble, lives off-campus and has been self-isolating, as required.

    Based on public health assessment, this case is being treated as though it is a lab-confirmed positive to ensure all precautions are taken.

    Indeterminate test results do not provide a negative or positive. They may occur because someone previously had COVID-19 and the virus is still detectable in their system, or someone has been tested before the virus is fully detectable. In these situations, public health conducts further assessment, including whether someone had or has symptoms or was recently exposed to someone with COVID-19, to inform how the case is treated. Since probable cases are not confirmed to be positive, they are not included in the total number of positive cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia.

    COVID-19 in Iceland: Violated Isolation and Infected Over 100

    Around 100 domestic cases of COVID-19 that have arisen in Iceland the past few days can be traced to a pair of French tourists that came to the country in mid-August, Vísir reports. The two were put into isolation after testing positive for the novel coronavirus, but broke regulations. Three different strains of SARS-CoV-2 are responsible for Iceland’s 281 active cases.

    In the last five days, 196 people have tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Iceland. Over half of the new infections can be traced to the Irishman pub and Brewdog restaurant, both in downtown Reykjavík. “Most of the infections in recent days originate from these two places. These are probably around 100 people or just over that,” Chief Epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason stated.

    Þórólfur added that there are three strains of the virus currently circulating. One is the so-called “Akranes” strain, while another is the “French” strain that arrived with the aforementioned tourists in August. The French strain is the strain that infected patrons of the two establishments in Reykjavík, who account for most of the country’s recent cases.

    FYI, Iceland's population is ~364,000; NS's is ~971,000.
