COVID-19 round-up for Wednesday, June 3

New Brunswick – There are two new cases of COVID-19 in the province today, Wednesday, June 3.

The new cases are:

  • an individual between 40 and 49 in Zone 5 (Campbellton region); and
  • an individual between 60 and 69 in Zone 5

One case is connected to a close contact of a previously identified case, and the second is linked to Manoir de la Vallée, the long-term care facility in Atholville at which there are several cases.

A Quebec resident linked to Manoir de la Vallee has also tested positive for COVID-19, but that case will contribute to the statistics for Quebec.

These cases bring the total number in New Brunswick to 135, with 15 cases active. There are five individuals in hospital, and one is in an intensive care unit.

If you or a member of your family are showing two of the following symptoms, contact Tele-Care 811 or your primary health-care provider for further direction:

  • fever above 38°C or signs of fever (such as chills);
  • a new cough or worsening chronic cough;
  • sore throat;
  • runny nose;
  • headache;
  • a new onset of fatigue;
  • a new onset of muscle pain;
  • diarrhea;
  • loss of sense of taste or loss of sense of smell; and
  • in children, purple markings on the fingers or toes. In this instance, testing will be done even if none of the other symptoms are present.

A self-assessment will help you determine if you should be tested for COVID-19.

Zone 5 remains at the Orange level of the provincial COVID-19 recovery plan, while all other provincial zones are in the first portion of the Yellow phase.

Information on public health recovery phases, measures and guidelines is available online.
