“Please remember that COVID-19 brings out many emotions in us,” said Russell.
“It causes many of us to experience feelings of confusion, anxiety, fear and grief. Some may also be angry. It is completely normal to feel these feelings when we face situations that are beyond our control. We can however choose how we react to these situations. We can offer support to our fellow New Brunswickers when they need it most.”
