Health officials say there are 12,549 active cases, and 115,445 people have recovered. The death toll in the province is 1,663.

The province also announced 369 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the provincial total to 129,657. The number of new cases isn’t entirely accurate, as changes to testing protocols and a shift to rapid tests mean every new case isn’t logged and reported.

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms is encouraged to use the online screening tool to determine whether they meet the necessary criteria to attend a community testing site.
