There are no more active cases in Newfoundland and Labrador, making it the only province in Canada to be COVID-19 free.

Health officials announced that its two remaining patients have recovered from the virus in its latest 24-hour stretch. The last time the province had no active cases was on Aug. 5, but shortly after it identified two new patients that were linked to one another, involving crew members of the television show Hudson & Rex.

Throughout the pandemic, Newfoundland and Labrador has had 268 cases of COVID-19. That includes three who have died, and 265 recovered patients.

While Newfoundland and Labrador is the only province with no active cases, all three territories also currently have no currently infected residents at the moment.

Nunavut remains the only jurisdiction to not have had a confirmed positive case throughout the pandemic. The Northwest Territories have zero active cases, and so does Yukon after its two remaining cases were marked resolved on Aug. 13.
