To date, New Brunswick has confirmed 313 cases of COVID-19 in the province. There have been 215 recoveries from the virus.

Dr. Jennifer Russell, the chief medical officer of health, said on Monday the three most recent cases were detected in the Campbellton region.

Russell said on Monday that there’s been a decrease in the number of new cases since the Moncton region was moved back to the orange phase.

She said Moncton would be ready to go back to the yellow phase later this week.

Russell said on Monday that the same recommendation cannot be made for the Campbellton region.

Last week, Russell declared a second outbreak at a single-room facility, Manoir Du Sagesse in Campbellton. She said residents of the region are not following guidelines to the extent that Public Health recommended.

Both the Moncton and Campbellton zones remain in the orange level of New Brunswick’s COVID-19 recovery plan on Tuesday, but Moncton will transition back to yellow on Thursday.

Russell also said on Monday all New Brunswickers are encouraged to download the COVID Alert app.
