17 New COVID-19 Cases Related to Special Care Home in Moncton

A day after Dr. Jennifer Russell announced that there was an outbreak at le Manoir Notre-Dame, a special care home in Moncton, the Chief Medical Officer of New Brunswick shared the alarming news at a press conference that there are 17 new cases associated with the Manoir outbreak. This is the most amount of new cases New Brunswick has seen in a single day since the start of the pandemic. 

Premier Blaine Higgs also participated in the press conference where he and Dr. Russell answered questions from the media relating to the outbreak. The outbreak is a cause for concern given the low number of cases that had previously been in the province, resulting in the Atlantic provinces forming a bubble in the summer months so that residents of the Atlantic provinces could travel inter-provincially. The outbreak at the Manoir so far has not resulted in New Brunswick being temporarily removed from the bubble, but the outbreak will still require weeks of monitoring to fully comprehend whether or not it has been contained.
