Two cases were identified Thursday in the Central Zone. They were the first for Nova Scotia in more than two weeks.

According to the province, they are Nova Scotians who travelled outside of Canada but have been in self-isolation since returning to the province.

Nova Scotia has recorded 63,912 negative test results, 1,069 positive cases and 64 deaths. There are no cases in hospital in the province due to the virus.
