Coronavirus outbreak: Important to "mourn safely" during COVID-19 pandemic, N.S. chief doctor says

Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health Dr. Robert Strang confirmed 46 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Monday, the largest one-day spike in cases the province has seen, bringing the total number of cases to 721.

Strang said during Monday's press conference that while we want to mourn the victims of Sunday's mass shooting by coming together as a community, "COVID-19 won't pause because of our pain" and we must continue to implement provincial health measures by maintaining physical distance and avoiding gatherings over 5 people. He added that when this pandemic passes the province would be able to come together to remember the victims of Sunday's tragedy, but today we need to focus on "mourning safely."

“This is hard to hear,” Strang said. “But we can’t have people gather together to show support. We thank you for your tributes but we have to do this virtually. When COVID-19 passes, we can come together as a province stronger than ever."
