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. They announce that as of April 25, non-essential travelers entering the province will be required to self-isolate in a designated isolation hotel room at their own expense for at least 7 days. If they test negative for COVID-19 on the seventh day, they may complete their 14-day quarantine at a residence where no one else lives. The province is also mandating that commuters and truckers returning to the province must stay at home for 14 days, only leaving to meet medical needs or to obtain necessities of life.
