The following op-ed was issued by Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health: In recent days, we have received questions looking for specific information about how the latest outbreaks of COVID-19 in Zone 1, the Moncton region, and Zone 5, the Campbellton region, began. I understand the desire to know what took place, and I also understand that people want to know why we cannot provide more specific information. As New Brunswick’s chief medical officer of health, I have a duty to do my best to protect public health, and I take this responsibility very seriously. In the event of an outbreak, my staff and I do everything in our power to provide people with the information they need to stay safe and minimize possible exposure to the virus.
