Public Health is reporting four deaths due to COVID-19 in New Brunswick on Saturday, the highest number for a single day.

There are also 140 new cases, also a single-day record. Of the new cases, 94 are unvaccinated, 12 are partially vaccinated and 34 are fully vaccinated.

Premier Blaine Higgs offered condolences to the family and friends of those who died.

"Marcia joins with me in expressing our sympathies to the families and friends of these four people," Higgs said in a media release.

"This virus is affecting New Brunswickers of all ages. Healthy younger people are getting sick as well as older individuals. Of the 140 cases announced, 88 are under 40. Those in that age bracket are less likely to end up in hospital but they still carry and can transmit the virus."

There are new cases in every region of the province, the most located in the Moncton region (52) and the Edmundston region (41).

As of Saturday's report, there were 764 active cases in the province. The province reported 49 recoveries.

There have been 4,412 confirmed cases of COVID-19 during the pandemic, with 3,583 recoveries, 192 hospitalizations and 64 deaths.

There are 44 people in hospital with 17 in intensive care.

Most severe wave since pandemic began

Although at least 80.4 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers are fully vaccinated, New Brunswick set records for new cases and deaths Saturday.

Higgs said in a Sep. 24 news conference that the early reopening and the drop of all restrictions on July 30, before reaching its original target to have 75 per cent of New Bruswickers aged 12 and older fully vaccinated, was "the right thing to do for New Brunswick" based on the information the government had at the time.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell warned before the July 30 reopening that case numbers would rise, and as they mounted in late summer, Higgs said the increase had been expected.

The new wave in cases and deaths comes after a new situation report shows that hospitals throughout the province are overwhelmed even if they don't have COVID-19 patients.

Public Safety officers to conduct spot checks at churches

A number of churches in the province have been the site of public exposures recently.

'Worship-type events' accounted for 10 per cent of September's COVID-19 cases in New Brunswick. The rise of transmission in religious settings is prompting some to implore church-goers and members of the clergy to take vaccination more seriously.

"While the vast majority of churches have been following the rules of the mandatory order, concerns remain that not all are," according to the release. "Public Safety officers will be out this weekend conducting spot checks of churches to ensure the mandatory order rules are being followed. Fines will be given to institutions and individuals who break the mandatory order rules."

Health system stressed as COVID-19 cases rise

On Sept. 24, health officials warned anywhere from 30 to 40 hospitalizations were projected to take place over the next two weeks.

According to the Oct. 1 Vitalité Health Network report, the regional health authority said it has reduced elective surgeries at the Campbellton Regional Hospital, which has an occupancy rate of 121.8 per cent with just one COVID-19 patient, who is in intensive care.

There are 10 COVID-19 patients, including four in the ICU, at the Edmundston Regional Hospital, which also reduced certain ambulatory care services. There is currently an occupancy rate of 82.5 per cent.

Patients requiring stringent care and monitoring are in concentrated care beds. All concentrated care beds at the Tracadie Hospital have been temporarily converted to "telemetry beds," according to the report. The occupancy rate for the Tracadie Hospital was not provided.

The Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre is at 115.4 per cent occupancy, with one COVID patient, while the Chaleur Regional Hospital is at 91.5 per cent and has no COVID patients.

A total of 21 health-care employees are off work and a total of 79 per cent of Vitalité workers are now fully vaccinated, while 83 per cent having received one dose.

All but one have decreased since Sept. 23.

  • Moncton Hospital: 85 per cent, down from 90 per cent.

  • Saint John Regional Hospital: 96 per cent, up from 91 per cent.

  • Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital: 90 per cent, down from 93 per cent.

  • Upper River Valley Hospital: 96 per cent, down from 110 per cent.

  • Miramichi Regional Hospital: 93 per cent, down from 100 per cent.

Horizon quietly reverted to a "modified orange alert level," internal documents reveal, due to a rise in COVID-19 cases and shortage of staff.

Public Health recommends that people who have been at a possible public exposure site and are not fully vaccinated get a COVID test, even if they don't have symptoms. They can book an appointment online or call Tele-Care 811.

If they do have symptoms, they must isolate while they await their results.

For people who are fully vaccinated, Public Health recommends they monitor for symptoms for 14 days after the possible exposure and get a COVID test if symptoms develop.

Anyone who frequented the locations at the specified dates and times should also avoid visiting settings with vulnerable populations such as nursing homes, correctional facilities and shelters for the next 14 days.

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.
