Nova Scotia is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 on Thanksgiving Monday.

The province still has four known active cases, with one person in hospital in the intensive care unit. 

There were no new cases found among 235 tests completed by the Nova Scotia Health Authority on Sunday.

The most recent cases in the province were announced Saturday. Two of the cases are related to travel outside of Canada, and the third case is a close contact, according to the Department of Health and Wellness.

The three people have been self-isolating.

A spokesperson with Nova Scotia Public Health confirmed that those cases are related to a possible exposure of COVID-19 on a flight from Toronto to Halifax last week. 

Anyone on the flight who was exposed to the coronavirus may develop symptoms up to and including Oct. 15. All passengers should monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 until that date.

So far, the province has had 101,310 negative test results, 1,092 positive COVID-19 cases and 65 deaths.

The latest numbers from around the Atlantic bubble are:

  • New Brunswick reported six new cases on Monday with 76 active cases in the province. Three cases are related to an outbreak at a special care home in Moncton and three are related to a regional outbreak in the Campbellton area. There is a potential exposure site in Moncton, at the Centre Père-Patrice-Leblanc on Murphy Avenue. Anyone who visited between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 4 should monitor for symptoms for 14 days.
  • Newfoundland and Labrador reported one new case of COVID-19 on Monday. The new case is travel related and the individual has been isolating. There are nine active cases in the province.
  • P.E.I. reported no new cases on Monday. The province has three active cases.

Despite the increase in cases in New Brunswick, a spokesperson for the Nova Scotia government said Friday the province has no intention of changing its border protocols.
