Emergency Departments at Horizon’s regional hospitals are extremely short staffed this weekend and priority will be given to trauma and critical care patients. Patients with non-urgent medical issues may experience long wait times.


Protect Yourself and Others from COVID-19

We all have a role to play in preventing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Taking simple actions such as wearing a mask, keeping a physical distance of two metres (six feet) from others, washing your hands regularly, covering your coughs and sneezes and staying home when sick will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially to vulnerable populations.

Symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, headache, difficulty breathing and other symptoms may take up to 14 days to appear.

If you’ve recently traveled outside the province or country and experience non-specific symptoms (such as congestion, achiness, feeling unwell) you should separate yourself from others and stay home to monitor yourself.

If you are displaying mild or moderate symptoms of COVID-19, complete the self-assessment by visiting gnb.ca/coronavirus or call Tele-Care 811:

  • describe your symptoms and travel history; and
  • follow any instructions carefully.
