Apr 25, 2023

New Brunswick is cutting back its COVID-19 updates to monthly instead of weekly, effective May 2, until October, when “regular reporting” will resume.

The Department of Health announced the change through a notice at the top of Tuesday’s COVIDWatch report.

Reports will be released on May 2, May 30, June 27, July 25, and Aug. 29, it says.

“For the next respiratory illness season, which will begin in early September, we will release bi-weekly reports on September 12th and September 26th and then move to weekly reporting afterwards.”

The change came as the province announced two more deaths from COVID-19, a decrease in new admissions to hospital because of the virus, and a decrease in new lab-confirmed cases.
