Nova Scotia announced five new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, and community spread hasn’t been ruled out as the source of one of them.
In a news release, the province said four of the new cases are travel-related or connected to earlier cases.
“One of the new cases cannot currently be linked to travel or an earlier case,” said the news release. “The investigation to determine the source of the exposure and whether any others may have been exposed is ongoing.
“At this point, public health cannot confirm that this case is linked to community spread.”
There are now 73 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the province.
Two individuals are currently in hospital and two have recovered.
More to come.
