    Relative to population, this is as bad as I've seen it get in NS (though I may be mis-remembering?).

    WA is around 1700+ new cases per day but our population is closer to Quebec. I just think back to just before Christmas and I think that spike hit 10 cases per day and it caused everything to shutdown. I'm surprised Strang let it go as far as it did this time.

    =====
    In addition, Nova Scotia Health Public Health has discovered that the high risk exposure notification that was listed last night for the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre for April 18, 2021 was incorrect. Though there was a high risk exposure at the Centre, the exposure was limited and those individuals have been contacted directly by Public Health to self-isolate. The exposure to the general public was low risk, therefore we ask that those present arrange a COVID-19 test, however, you do not have to self-isolate unless you have symptoms of the virus. We understand that this has caused significant disruption in the community, and we apologize for this error.

    Anyone who worked at or visited the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre (606 Reeves St, Port Hawkesbury) on April 18 between noon and 6 p.m. should immediately visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you.

    I believe at the start of the pandemic we had double the active cases we do now. Not trying to downplay things but I think we can get this back under control.

    201 active, man that number needs to drop. My oldest just said she looked up the highest daily cases in NS and it was 55 on an April day 2020. With 52 today we are getting back to wave 1 numbers. But also saw on Twitter the Sack Sports Stadium rapid test line up was at least 1000 this am. That’s awesome

    I don’t doubt it but the wild card is the variants and how much they come into play. The evidence across the world is showing that it’s taken things to another level.

    Today's press release

    Four cases are in Northern Zone, one of which was identified Friday, April 23, at Cobequid Educational Centre in Truro.

A breakdown by zone identifying exposure categories will no longer be provided regularly. There are signs of community spread in Central Zone. At this time, there are no signs of community spread in Eastern, Northern or Western Zone.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 201 active cases of COVID-19.

    Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 7,910 Nova Scotia tests on April 23.

    Nova Scotia has amazing contact tracing but you are also such a small population and easier to do, I hope you guys get a handle on this and "flatten the curve" .

    Quite the argument on reddit over that video. Example: "...this amount of cars would amount for the beach being like 10% full. Assuming none of the cars are people hiking on the trail... Which many probably are"

    Fingers crossed, but I think the variants (predominantly the UK) may have changed the game a little this time though

    Change in public health contact tracing process

    Saturday, April 24, 2021 - 05:40PM

    The current spike in cases requires the Public Health team to shift contact tracing priorities. Public health is currently able to contact all new cases within 24 hours. There may be delays in contacting high-risk contacts of those cases.

    In some situations individuals may receive a letter or a text rather than a phone call with instructions to self-isolate and get tested. A public health nurse will follow up by phone. However, this may take longer than the usual 72 hours.

    Those deemed to have lower risk exposure and are identified as low or moderate risk contacts will no longer be contacted by public health.

    If you think you may be a contact of someone with COVID-19, and public health has not contacted you, please get tested and self-isolate until you receive a negative result. Please book your test online at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en or by calling 811 and identify yourself as close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19. If you believe you are a close contact of a positive case:

    • Please DO NOT go directly to a COVID-19 primary assessment centre or a mobile unit site. You must make an appointment.
    • Please DO NOT go to a pop-up rapid testing location.
    • The test for COVID-19 is free. If you have a health card, please have it ready when you book your testing appointment. Bring it with you to your appointment too.
    • You can walk, drive, bike or taxi to your appointment. Please DO NOT take the bus or ferry. If you need help with transportation, let us know when booking your appointment.
    If you are not a close contact but have symptoms, please get tested and self-isolate.

    Nova Scotians are encouraged to get tested regularly, especially if you live in an area where there is community spread. Nova Scotia Health is ramping up testing capacity through primary assessment centres, mobile units and pop-up rapid testing sites. For more information about testing options, visit https://www.nshealth.ca/coronavirustesting

    Potential exposure to COVID-19 at various locations in Central, Northern and Eastern Zones (corrected version)

    Saturday, April 24, 2021 - 08:33PM

    Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 at various locations in Central, Northern and Eastern Zones. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.

    Please note:
    Based on a decision made by the Medical Officers of Health, Public Health is now only issuing public potential exposure notifications in the Central Zone for locations where Public Health recommends people self-isolate and get tested. This means we will no longer be issuing notifications for low risk locations in Central Zone, such as a retail or grocery stores. Given the risk of community transmission in the Central Zone, everyone should consider getting tested for COVID-19, not just those present at specific exposure locations. Public Health strongly encourages all Nova Scotians to get tested for COVID-19 and follow Public Health restrictions.

    Five New Schools Report COVID-19, Family of Schools to Close

    Education and Early Childhood Development / COVID - 19

    April 24, 2021 - 9:31 PM

    Nova Scotia is reporting five new schools with COVID-19 connected cases.

    Caledonia Junior High and Prince Andrew High School in Dartmouth, Citadel High School in Halifax, and Breton Education Centre in New Waterford reported one case each today, April 24.

    Astral Drive Elementary, which was closed last week, also reported a case today.

    Out of an abundance of caution, students in the Prince Andrew family of schools will learn from home until May 10. Schools will communicate with students and families on the arrangements for students to gather essential personal belonging, such as medication, specialized equipment, and learning resources, and technology if needed.

    For a list of schools included in the Prince Andrew family of schools, go to: https://www.hrce.ca/about-hrce/scho...der-schools/prince-andrew-high-school-english .

    Astral Drive Elementary is already closed as it is part of the Auburn High family of schools. Caledonia Junior High is a Prince Andrew High feeder school and will close until May 10.

    Citadel High School families will receive an update on Sunday, April 25 regarding timelines for when the building will reopen. Until the building is reopened, students will learn from home.

    Breton Education Centre will remain closed to students until Thursday, April 29. A deep cleaning will take place and students will learn from home during the closure. Families will receive an update on Wednesday, April 28.

    Public health will be in touch with any close contacts of these positive cases and advise of next steps, including testing. Everyone who is a close contact will be notified, tested and asked to self-isolate for 14 days.

    Out of an abundance of caution, public health is recommending that all students and staff be tested. No self-isolation is required, unless people have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.

    I have a large number of colleagues in India - man, it is bad there. We're pressing pause on a bunch of projects as so many people are either out sick themselves or looking after loved ones. Just nuts.
