Data notes

The Government of New Brunswick is providing New Brunswickers with a public dashboard site that provides a single location to obtain data about COVID-19 in New Brunswick and New Brunswick’s efforts to limit the spread of the virus.

New Brunswickers will be able to access the dashboard to see important data related to COVID-19 cases, testing, recovery phases, and other data, such as inter-provincial traffic statistics and hospital bed occupancy.

Data changes will be made daily based on case information, characteristics of reported cases change or are updated, and data corrections.

 


 

Sources

There are three main data sources for the public dashboard. They are:

  • Regional Health Authorities: hospital bed occupancy and ICU bed occupancy
      
  • Department of Health: case counts, test numbers, epidemiology
       
  • Department of Public Safety: interprovincial traffic statistics

             


 

Dashboard usage tips

  • Hovering over data points on charts will provide details.
      
  • Clicking on map icons will provide more specific information related to recovery phase, traffic control points and healthcare facilities.
      
  • Click the top right corner of any chart/window to make it full screen. Click again to return to the dashboard view.

 


 

Traffic control point data

Traffic control point data is shown for the previous day and is divided between personal and commercial vehicles that arrived at a point of entry.

The “refused” number refers to the number of vehicles that were denied entry into the province. The refusal rate reflects the total number of refusals for that date compared to the total number of vehicles that arrived at a point of entry.

 


 

Health data

All case data is aggregated at the health zone level. No personal information is being shared in any parts of the dashboard, only counts.
