Celebrate Easter safely

Easter is traditionally a time for New Brunswickers to gather with family and friends. This year, Easter — like most celebrations in 2020 — must look a little different. With vaccinations now taking place in our province, we have reason to be optimistic for the future. Our province has been fortunate to avoid the worst of the pandemic, thanks in large part to the co-operation of New Brunswickers. Now is not the time to let down our guard. The New Brunswick Medical Society encourages New Brunswickers to continue to follow local Public Health guidance this weekend. Keep your number of contacts low, maintain physical distancing in public spaces, wear a mask, practise good hand hygiene, and stay home and away from others if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
