Halifax –

Of the new cases, 138 were in the central zone, 16 in the eastern zone, six in the western zone and five in the northern zone, according to public health.

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and participants there. For the second year in a row, Mother’s Day will be very different than we used to be,” said Prime Minister Ian Rankin. “Thank you for making your celebrations as safe as possible.”

In a press release on Sunday, the province said one of the new Central Zone cases involved an employee at Northwood Hospital. The follow-up is done with customers and staff, the release said.

“Nova Scots have made changes in their daily lives to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and it is important to continue to follow public health practices when celebrating Mother’s Day,” said Dr. Robert Strong, Chief Medical Officer of Health at Nova Scotia. “Now is not the time to reduce our security. If you do not live with the image of your mother, please almost celebrate Mother’s Day.”

The province says there is evidence of community outbreaks in the central zone, while the remaining zones are being monitored for signs of outbreaks.
