Masking still a choice, but risk of COVID-19 reinfection is real, says Russell – CBC

Some people are testing positive again within three months of infection, chief medical officer of health says

Jun 15, 2022

Three months after COVID-19 restrictions were lifted in New Brunswick, masks are becoming an increasingly rare sight in both indoor and outdoor public spaces.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell says her advice on masking hasn’t changed.

“I continue to recommend that again, if you want to decrease your risks, then you can wear a mask. It’s your choice.”

But Russell did say people need to be aware they can be reinfected.

“We are seeing reinfections. Not a lot, but we are seeing reinfections, because it is physically possible to get reinfected with COVID, there’s no question,” she said.

Russell cited the example of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is fully vaccinated and has tested positive for the second time this year. Trudeau previously tested positive in January.
