COVID-19 Outbreaks Plunge Moncton and Campbellton Regions Back to Orange Status (Sep. 9, 2020)

Entering Thanksgiving weekend, two regions of New Brunswick have been pushed back to the Orange level (2nd Phase) of the Coronavirus Recovery Plan, while the rest of the province remains cautiously at the Yellow stage (3rd Phase). Public Health announced on Oct. 9th that there were 12 new cases of COVID-19 in Zone 5, which is the Campbellton region, and one new case in Zone 1, the Moncton region. Outbreaks of the coronavirus were recently detected in both regions, including at the Manoir Notre-Dame special-care home in Moncton's Elmwood Drive area. Just the day before, it was announced by the Province that wearing facemasks in public places is now mandatory, which has since been clarified to include both indoor and outdoor public spaces. As for New Brunswick as a whole, this puts the number of active cases at 37, which include three hospitalizations. Since the beginning of this global pandemic, there have been 238 cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick, including two deaths and 199 recoveries.

For all of the details and impacts of this Recovery Plan setback in Zones 1 and 5 refer to the NB Public Health news release found at the link_here.

COVID-19: Another 17 Cases in Moncton Outbreak (Oct. 7, 2020)

There are now 22 active cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick with the Oct. 7th announcement of 17 new cases of the Coronavirus. These new cases are linked to the outbreak at Moncton’s Manoir Notre-Dame special-care home, at which two cases were announced the previous day (press release with full details). The positive cases are all staff and residents of the manor, or their close contacts, and all are self-isolating. Two of the patients have been hospitalized. As part of NB Public Health’s continued response to the outbreak, a clinical care team on-site has tested 153 residents and staff, and has started contact tracing. Meantime, two places identified by Public Health for potential public exposure are the Moncton Costco Optical Centre and the Moncton St-Hubert restaurant. Anyone who has been to either spot since Thursday, Oct. 1st should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and, if any COVID-19 symptoms appear, proceed to self-isolate and contact 811 to arrange for testing. Since the onset of the global pandemic there have been 222 cases of the Coronavirus in New Brunswick, of which two proved fatal. There have been 198 recoveries.

UPDATE (Oct. 23) > Salisbury to abide by NB Guidelines for Halloween

Salisbury Village Council asks that when it comes to Halloween this year, residents follow New Brunswick Public Health guidelines (click_here_for_NB_Halloween_Guidelines). Under Phase 3/Yellow of the province's Coronavirus Recovery Plan, door-to-door collecting and giving out of Halloween treats is permitted. Again, please refer to information at the provided link above. *

* Meantime, if you are a homeowner/resident who still does NOT wish to participate in Halloween this year, the Village of Salisbury asks that you adopt the long unwritten practice of turning OFF your outdoor light (or porch light, yard light) as a form of signal to trick-or-treaters that this house will not be giving out treats. Trick-or-treaters are asked to look for a light-on to identify which houses to approach.
