As COVID-19 cases reach an all-time high in Nova Scotia, some surgeries are being cancelled yet again.

On April 4, most elective and non-urgent surgeries at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax were cancelled because of the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 and the number of staff unable to work.
