New Brunswick opens its borders to all Canadians |  COVID-19 in the Atlantic

Travelers, residents of Atlantic provinces and RCMs in Avignon and Temiscota in Quebec must register on the New Brunswick Government website before traveling.

Undesirable persons can come to the province, but if they have tested negative for COVID-19 it will be isolated. This test should be done five to seven days after they arrive.

Restaurants, bars, gyms, spas and hairdressers can operate at their normal capacity and sports games are allowed if travel rules are followed.

Returning to normal [la phase 3] Are coming. You can start making plans for big meetings like weddings, Prime Minister Blaine Higgs told a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Some health measures are still in place, such as wearing a mask in public places inside the home.

I want to prepare people for what is to come. If we open more, we are going to see more COVID-19 cases in our home, but at the same time the vaccination rate is increasing, Said Dr. Jennifer Russell, Chief Medical Officer of Provincial Health.

She asks the population to wear a mask, respect social distance, wash their hands and see the appearance of symptoms.

Successful vaccine campaign

On Wednesday, 20.2% of people 65 and older received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. A total of 75.4% of those aged 12 and over received the vaccine dose.

Achieving this goal will be possible in the coming days, if not hours, Prime Minister Higgs said on Tuesday.

3 new cases of COVID-19

New Brunswick on Wednesday reported three new cases of COVID-19 in the Moncton, Fredericton and Bathurst areas. All of these individuals have been in close contact with previously reported cases.
