There is still one person in hospital in the intensive care unit as a result of COVID-19.
According to the province's website, Nova Scotia has had a total of 101,310 negative tests of the virus.
Positive cases in the region range in age from under 10 to over 90. Of those, 61 per cent were women, and 39 per cent were men.
Nova Scotia last reported a new case of COVID-19 on Saturday, when it announced three new cases in the Central zone, which includes Halifax.
CASES BY ZONE
There are cases confirmed across the province, but most have been identified in the Central zone, which contains the Halifax Regional Municipality.
