Nova Scotia reported two new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, the lowest number of new daily cases in a month.

There are 46 active cases in the province.

One of the new cases is in the western health zone and one is in the eastern zone. They are both related to travel outside Atlantic Canada and they are both self-isolating.

The eastern zone case is a member of Eskasoni First Nation.

In a release, the Nova Scotia Health Authority said Public Health is working with the chief to manage the case and contact tracing is underway. There is no evidence of community spread.

“Though cases are down, COVID-19 is still here and we have to keep up our efforts to slow the spread,” Premier Stephen McNeil said in the release.

“Our public health team works hard to contain the virus, and by following all the public health protocols, we are helping them and protecting each other. And let’s not forget another important part of battling this virus — being kind to one another.”

Nova Scotia Health Authority labs completed 1,111 tests on Friday.
