New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs and the province's chief medical officer of health Dr. Jennifer Russell provided an update on Sunday regarding the number of COVID-19 cases in the province and discussed the government's ongoing response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Starting June 1, New Brunswick will only be testing individuals with two or more symptoms of COVID-19, announced Dr. Russell. The province's top doctor also announced three new cases of COVID-19, all confirmed to be elderly residents of Manoir de la Vallée Manor in Atholville, N.B., bringing New Brunswick's total active coronavirus cases to 12.

The community is dealing with an increase in cases after a family doctor who contracted the virus outside New Brunswick didn’t self-isolate upon return.
