As Dr. Strang says, β€œWash your hands, stay in your community, and get tested – that’s how we are going to get through the third wave”.

Other communities across Nova Scotia have had more than 1,000 tests per day and Public Health is aiming for high numbers for Lunenburg County as well.

Stay Positive, Test Negative – hope to see you on the weekend for volunteering or testing.
