Public health encourages people to get an asymptomatic COVID-19 test, especially if they have a high number of close contacts due to their work or social activities.
“Nova Scots have shown their love for their families, friends and communities since the day this epidemic began,” said Dr. Robert Strong, chief medical officer of Nova Scotia Health.
“The journey is not over yet. We must be on the lookout for each other in all our public health activities, including routine check-ups, even if you are not feeling well.”
