    Eight of the cases are in Esgenoôpetitj First Nation, four were discovered in Natoaganeg First Nation and two were found in Metepenagiag First Nation.

    "An outbreak is declared as a means of securing more resources to help with COVID-19 related cases," said Metepenagiag Chief Bill Ward in a post on Facebook. "This DOES NOT mean that our cases are out of control."...

        N.B. COVID-19 roundup: 82 new cases, province stops reporting vaccination status of hospitalized
        Only rates per 100,000 for new cases, hospitalizations, ICU admissions now provided on the COVID-19 dashboard

        New Brunswick recorded 82 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, the highest single-day jump in more than a month, and the provincial government has stopped reporting the vaccination status of new cases, people hospitalized and in intensive care with COVID-19.
        Instead, it provides only the rates of cases, hospitalizations and ICU admissions per 100,000 New Brunswickers based on their vaccination status on the COVID-19 dashboard.

        The Department of Health says this gives "a more accurate picture."...

            N.B. imposes self-isolation requirements on households where someone has tested positive for COVID-19

            HALIFAX -

            With transmission within private households the cause of 49 per cent of new cases in New Brunswick, the province is implementing tougher self-isolation rules to combat the spread of COVID-19.

            "Beginning (Friday) on Nov. 19 at 6 p.m., when someone in a household tests positive for COVID-19, everyone in that household must also self-isolate (for 14 days), regardless of vaccination status," New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs said Thursday afternoon during a news conference in Fredericton. "This measure will be in place throughout New Brunswick. Household members who are fully vaccinated however, and test negative with a PCR test, will be able to leave isolation. This is because we recognize that even though you've been vaccinated, you could still be a carrier."

            In a news release from Public Health, officials said that household members who are fully vaccinated will be able to leave isolation with a Day 5 negative PCR test. A Day 10 PCR test must still be taken to confirm the negative result...

            ... New Brunswick's chief medical officer, Dr. Jennifer Russell, said there are 72 new cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick.

            "The cases remain high which continues to threaten our hospital system," Russell said. "Over the past week, 49 per cent of new COVID-19 cases reported in New Brunswick were the result of transmission within private households."

            On Wednesday, New Brunswick reported 82 new cases, which was the highest number in a month.

            "Today's number of new cases is 72, above a rolling seven-day average of 60 new cases per day," Russell said. "We have also seen a slight increase in the number of people admitted to hospital and to ICU wards, most of whom are unvaccinated."

            Russell said Thursday that there are 28 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 14 of them are in intensive care...
