Update on Zone 3 cases
Currently, there are 11 active cases in Zone 3 (Fredericton region). Public Health investigations are ongoing with the latest cases. Most of the cases are either directly travel-related or linked to an individual who recently travelled outside the Atlantic bubble, including international travel. Individual cases and their close contacts are currently self-isolating.
“As people continue to travel outside the Atlantic bubble we will see sporadic cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick,” said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health. “We are seeing a higher risk of transmission in households; therefore, it is important for individuals to follow the proper self-isolation guidelines.”
