New Brunswick reports one new case of COVID-19 Monday, 26 active cases remain


New Brunswick is reporting one new case of COVID-19 on Monday as the active number of cases in the province rises to 26.

The case is in the province's Moncton region (Zone 1) and involves an individual in their 50s. Public health says the case is under investigation.


New Brunswick's COVID-19 online dashboard provides an update on the number of vaccines that have been administered to date.

As of Monday, 746,333 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered, with approximately 77.5 per cent of the province's eligible population having received at least one dose.

Currently, 30.2 per cent of New Brunswickers aged 12 and older are fully vaccinated.

That means more than 209,000 residents are, or are on the way to becoming fully vaccinated, just one week after the province opened up appointments for second doses to everyone aged 12 and older.

"Nearly one-third are vaccinated with two doses and that bodes very well for us getting our targets," said Dorothy Shephard, New Brunswick's health minister.

The province’s next stage target date in its reopening plan is August 2, as long as at least 75 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers have received two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

Dr. Jeff Steeves, president of the New Brunswick Medical Society, says the jump in vaccination rates is positive news for the province.

"The fact that we've jumped 20 to 30 per cent in about a week and that we're setting record numbers of vaccinations, we had a seven day record, 84,000 shots at the end of last week," said Steeves.

The news comes just days after the Public Health Agency of Canada released guidelines on what fully vaccinated individuals can do together.

"This is one virus, but we've learned that wearing a mask was excellent at protecting us from the others ,from the cold virus, from the flu viruses, so you may be finding a lot of us might still want to wear a mask," said Steeves.

All eligible New Brunswickers can book their second dose appointments if at least 28 days have passed since their first dose.

To receive their second dose, New Brunswickers are asked to bring a signed consent form, their Medicare card and a copy of the record of immunization provided after receiving their first dose.

Appointments for people who have not yet received their first dose continue to be available to all New Brunswickers aged 12 and older at regional health authority clinics and through participating pharmacies.

People who received AstraZeneca both times can rest assured that the vaccine provides protection against infection, severe disease and hospitalization.

Public Health is also reminding New Brunswickers to keep a copy of their Record of Immunization form as their official proof of vaccination.
