COVID-19 Update - March 20

Here are a few updates shared by New Brunswick Public Health today.


  1. In an effort to allow 811 health-care professionals to support more people who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, a new online tool to assess symptoms is available.  Using this tool will help you determine when you should call the 811 line, which will reduce the volume of calls from people seeking basic information.
  2. Maintaining our blood supply is vital to our health-care system in ordinary circumstances, and these are not ordinary circumstances.  Canada Blood Services has alerted us to an urgent need for new donations to maintain supply.  Additional screening and social distancing measures are in place, and it is safe to donate blood.  This is an important way to make a difference at this critical time.
