Catherine Girard (Université du Québec à Chicoutimi), Mark Mallory (Acadia University), and Warwick F. Vincent (Université Laval) have authored a feature in the Globe and Mail, "New ways forward in Canadian Arctic research". The researchers describe the difficulties in continuing vital arctic research brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Researchers across Nova Scotia are launching a project aimed at detecting the presence of the virus that causes COVID-19 in human wastewater, helping to identify the potential presence of the virus quickly and before it can spread.

Building on the recent results of a pilot study, the research team has begun to collect samples in locations throughout the province. Locations have been selected by the research team in conjunction with provincial public health officials and the Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA).

Acadia University President Emeritus and former Vice-Chancellor Ray Ivany has been named to the Order of Canada, one of only two Nova Scotians to join the Order this year.
