We’re in this together

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our normal routines upside down. It has impacted how we interact with each other, how businesses and schools operate, and how physicians provide care to patients.

Since the pandemic began, the New Brunswick Medical Society (NBMS) has worked with government to make virtual visits available to patients and to ensure physicians in community practices are properly protected with personal protective equipment.

We must work together to keep the curve flat. The NBMS urges citizens to follow the advice of Public Health. Respect physical distancing measures and wear a face mask when physical distancing is not possible. Wash hands regularly and continue good sanitization practices.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not over.

Don’t Put Your Health On Hold

Physician offices across New Brunswick are open and appointments are available to help manage acute and chronic conditions and injuries, review test results, prescription renewals, and other illnesses.

Many physicians are offering virtual visits via phone or video conference in place of regular in-office visits for routine medical issues that can be managed remotely. For in-person care, physicians are following Public Health advice to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission in their office and keep patients safe.
