"I am so proud of the commitment Nova Scotians have shown to flattening the curve. We've worked together to tackle this virus, but our work is not done. Now is not the time to let our guard down," said Premier Stephen McNeil in a news release.

"As restrictions are eased, and we head toward an Atlantic bubble, it remains as important as ever to follow all public health guidance and basic hygiene advice — wash your hands, keep your distance and routinely clean and disinfect surfaces."

Nova Scotia has had 1,061 cases of COVID-19 and 63 deaths related to the coronavirus.

The province says there are still two people in the hospital related to COVID-19, but their cases are considered resolved.
