FREDERICTON — New Brunswick reported 44 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday.

Health officials said in a news release there were 504 active infections in the province, including 17 people in hospital with the disease.

They said nine people were in intensive care and eight of those were unvaccinated.

About 86 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and nearly 93 per cent have received at least one dose.

Officials said school personnel and residents aged 65 and older can book appointments for booster shots if six months have passed since their second doses.

After the land border between Canada and the United States reopened Monday, officials reminded residents that all travellers must comply with guideline set by both governments.
