FREDERICTON (GNB) – Public Health reported no new cases of COVID-19 today.

Two patients are hospitalized, and one is in intensive care. Yesterday, 909 tests were conducted for a total of 224,932.
Public Health reminds New Brunswickers of the importance of self-monitoring and of getting tested if they have COVID-19 symptoms, such as:
- new cough, or worsening chronic cough;
- sore throat;
- runny nose;
- new onset of fatigue;
- loss of sense of taste;
- loss of sense of smell; and
- in children, purple markings on the fingers and toes.
If you have two or more symptoms, you must self-isolate and take the self-assessment online or call 811 to get tested. If you have only one symptom, you are not required to self-isolate, but you may ask to be tested.
“While we have had great success in slowing the spread of the virus in New Brunswick, we must remain vigilant,” said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health. “If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, get tested. Don’t assume it is a cold or allergies. Don’t take chances with your health or the health of your family, friends and community.”
