FREDERICTON — New Brunswick is reporting 100 new cases of COVID-19, 71 of which involve people who are not yet fully vaccinated.

In a news release Saturday, officials say 66 of the cases involve people who haven't received any shots, while five of them have received one dose of a vaccine.

Public health says there are 929 active reported cases in the province with 56 people in hospital.

Health officials are reminding residents to celebrate Thanksgiving only with people in their households.

Authorities are also advising against unnecessary travel into certain areas of the province including the Moncton and Edmundston regions.

The fourth wave of COVID-19 has hit New Brunswick much harder than the first three, despite nearly 82 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
