Nova Scotia reported 61 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday.

To date, there are 200 known active COVID-19 cases in the province.

Thirteen people are currently in hospital, including four in the ICU.

There are 33 cases in the northern zone, 24 cases in the central zone and four cases in the western zone.

The province identified a cluster of cases in a “localized community” in the northern zone. The higher case numbers in this area of Nova Scotia are associated with a cluster of cases among largely unvaccinated people, Dr. Robert Strang said in a news release.

Strang, the province’s chief medical officer of health, said “they are co-operating with local public health and the cases appear to be contained within this group.”
