New Brunswick has another 65 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, putting the province’s active case count at 509, the dashboard shows.

The number of people in hospital and in intensive care have both risen by one to 24 and 15 respectively.

A total of 77.9 per cent per cent of New Brunswickers aged 12 and older are fully vaccinated, up from 77.8 per cent on Monday, while 86.6 per cent have received at least one dose, up from 86.5.

New Brunswick has had 3,501 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began, with 2,943 recoveries so far and 48 COVID-related deaths.

A total of 440,909 tests have been conducted to date, including 3,126 on Monday.

No complaints to Elections Canada on virus-related voting issues

An official with Elections Canada says she has not received any direct complaints about voting access problems related to COVID-19.

CBC News heard from a few voters who were unable to cast ballots Monday because of the need to self-isolate, and who were upset there was no other option for them.

Françoise Enguehard, regional media adviser for Elections Canada in the Atlantic provinces, says that’s why at the beginning of the election period, Elections Canada stressed people should not wait until the last minute to vote.

“It’s an unfortunate event, but it is not unlike what happens every election and we never speak about, which are, you know, cases of people who fall ill just before the election and have to be hospitalized,” she told CBC’s Information Morning Fredericton on Tuesday.  “The people who have to leave unexpectedly because there is a family crisis do not get to vote either.”

There are many advance voting options, she said, and 5.8 million people took advantage of them.

Posters available for business owners

New Brunswick business owners can now access posters to inform patrons about the new COVID-19 regulations, the province announced Tuesday.

Masks will be required in all public indoor spaces, starting at 11:59 p.m.

People aged 12 and older will also have to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and government identification to access most non-essential businesses, services and events.

Acceptable proof includes a MyHealthNB record, an immunization record from a regional health authority clinic, pharmacy or Public Health, a photo or copy of an immunization record, or proof of vaccination from another jurisdiction.

Business owners can now access updated posters to inform patrons about the new regulations. Please visit https://t.co/PyMKekljV9. Questions about the rules? Contact the Business Navigators at 1-833-799-7966 or nav@navnb.ca @ONBCanada pic.twitter.com/qbBUJU96wV

What to do if you have a symptom

People concerned they might have COVID-19 can take a self-assessment test online.

Public Health says symptoms of the illness have included a fever above 38 C, a new or worsening cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, a new onset of fatigue, and difficulty breathing.

In children, symptoms have also included purple markings on the fingers and toes.

People with one of those symptoms should stay at home, call 811 or their doctor and follow instructions.
