Six people are in hospital with COVID-19, with two in intensive care. There's also one New Brunswicker in hospital outside the province, also in intensive care.

On Friday, 977 COVID-19 tests were conducted bringing the pandemic total to 333,712.

62% partly vaccinated

The number of New Brunswickers who are partially vaccinated against COVID-19 continues to climb, according to Public Health.

On Sunday, the province reported that 430,489 New Brunswickers over the age of 12 have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

That represents 62.1 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers, an increase of 8,262 people over Saturday's numbers.

In addition, thousands of AstraZeneca doses the province has that were set to expire on May 31 have had their expiry date extended.

The province's 2,700 doses of the vaccine will now expire on July 1.

Health Canada said a review of "stability data" led to the change.
