Public Health has been investigating a Legionella outbreak in the New Glasgow area since early July. After several weeks with no new cases, and re-testing to ensure the absence of Legionella bacteria where it was previously discovered, this outbreak is now considered over.
Less than one month into her new role as a Nurse Practitioner at the Kings and Annapolis Primary Care Clinic in Middleton, Nova Scotia, Hannah Snow is overwhelmed by the welcoming, supportive environment from colleagues and gratitude from patients.
Nova Scotia Health is continuing verification of the Need a Family Practice registry over the next several weeks. As part of this work, we are contacting a significant number of people currently registered to confirm if they are still in need of a primary care provider.
