Public Health reported 93 new cases of COVID-19 and two deaths on Sunday.

A person 70-79 in Zone 2 (Saint John region) and a person 50-59 in Zone 4 (Edmundston region) have died. Public Health is also reporting 96 recoveries.

More than 80 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and 89.5 per cent have received their first dose of a vaccine.

Of the new cases, 67 per cent are unvaccinated, 13 per cent are partially vaccinated and 20 per cent are fully vaccinated.

"Two more deaths from COVID-19 is tragic news and Marcia and I extend our condolences to the families of those who passed away," said Premier Blaine Higgs.

There are 45 people hospitalized due to the virus, with 20 in intensive care. Of those in hospital, 35 are unvaccinated and 10 are either partially vaccinated or fully vaccinated.

Public Health contact tracing since Friday has determined a number of private gatherings are resulting in transmission of the virus, particularly among unvaccinated people. Events including hunting parties, prayer groups, birthday parties, private funerals and a backyard wedding have resulted in new cases at various locations throughout the province.

"In this fourth wave, we have seen a high number of cases sparked from private gatherings," said Dr. Russell. "Limiting those gatherings to 20 as per the mandatory order helps reduce spread and improve our contact tracing."

Russell says spike in cases, deaths need 'context'

The new cases and deaths follow the largest single-day rise in cases and deaths the province has seen. There were 140 new cases and four deaths announced Saturday.

In an interview, Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province's chief medical officer of health, said reviewing the weekend numbers could cause alarm.

"Yes, without context, very scary numbers," said Russell.

"But taken in context, we can look at, 'What does that mean in terms of hospitalizations, what does that mean in terms of ICU admissions?' And right now the regional health authorities have been doing an outstanding job working together to make sure that, as a province, all the resources are being utilized."

However, a recent situation report from Vitalité Health Network shows that many health centres have reduced services as COVID-19 cases continue to climb.

When asked about having 20 ICU patients in New Brunswick, Russell said the province is "doing OK."

"When they give percentages of capacity every single day and how people are doing, as of right now, they're managing," said Russell. "In terms of a crisis, I feel like — based on those conversations and those reports — we're doing OK."

Drew Nursing Home records another death, 2 new cases

Drew Nursing Home in Sackville has recorded another COVID-related death and two additional COVID cases, according to a notice sent to families late Sunday afternoon.

Since the previous update Friday, COVID has claimed the life of another resident, bringing the total number of COVID-related deaths to six, the notice said. "Our sympathies go out to the families and friends of this resident."

One more resident and one more staff member have also tested positive. This brings the total to 39 cases — 29 residents and 10 employees.

There are 13 active cases among residents and five among staff.

The home continues to test residents and staff twice a week, according to the notice. The next testing clinic is scheduled for Tuesday.

COVID-19 testing centres update

Delays for COVID-19 testing at assessment centres throughout the province have been resolved in all areas except for Zone 3 (Fredericton region).

Appointments are being booked between 24-48 hours with extended hours to increase capacity at some assessment centres. Zone 3 is experiencing a bit of a backlog, but it is anticipated it will be resolved sometime Tuesday.

"We are seeing the backlog reduce significantly," Russell said. "I would like to remind everyone that testing is conducted on a priority basis with individuals who have symptoms prioritized, so if you do not have symptoms or are not identified as a contact of a case or have not been to an exposure site, please self-monitor and get tested if you have symptoms."

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.
