New Brunswick is reporting 67 new cases of COVID-19 Saturday as the province continues to battle the fourth wave of the virus.
Public health officials also recorded 81 recoveries, bringing the total number of active cases to 593.
They say there are 17 people in intensive care and another 13 in hospital for a total of 30 patients hospitalized in the province.
Officials say new infections and hospitalizations continue to affect unvaccinated people the most.
The New Brunswick government tightened quarantine rules this week to address persistently high numbers of COVID-19 cases.
As of 6 p.m. Friday, if someone tests positive for COVID-19, everyone in their household – regardless of their vaccination status – must isolate for up to 14 days. Failure to do so could result in a fine of between $480 and $20,400.
