COVID-19 in New Brunswick: Moncton moves back to yellow level – October 19, 2020
In Fredericton, Dr. Jennifer Russell, New Brunswick’s chief medical officer of health, and Premier Blaine Higgs provide an update on the province’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. Dr. Russell says she recommends that Zone 1 (Moncton) moves back to the yellow level, following a decrease in the number of new cases reported after the area was moved to the higher orange phase. She adds that Zone 5 (Campbellton) must remain at the orange level due to the continued growth of COVID-19 cases. Both zones had been moved to the orange level on October 9.
