The president of Doctors Nova Scotia is worried people may be getting complacent with public health protocols.
This comes after a rise in COVID-19 cases and public exposures over the last few weeks.
Robyn MacQuarrie told NEWS 95.7's The Sheldon MacLeod Show the province and public health have worked very hard to ensure Nova Scotia keeps its COVID-19 numbers low, and she urges the public not to rest on their laurels.
"If you're cheating the rules, you're not really serving anybody, you're not serving yourself and you're not serving your community," said MacQuarrie/
She believes the province is doing a very good job of addressing the pandemic, but adds the public needs to listen and follow along.
MacQuarrie says Doctors Nova Scotia is pleading with the public to stick it out especially leading up to the holiday season, adding they need to protect the province's most vulnerable.
