FREDERICTON — New Brunswick is reporting no new cases of COVID-19 today following recent outbreaks in the Moncton and Campbellton regions.

Health authorities say the Moncton and Campbellton health zones will remain in the orange alert level of the province's COVID-19 recovery plan, which bans most indoor and outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people.

The province said Wednesday contact tracing confirmed that the source of the Moncton outbreak is travel-related.

Cases were confirmed at four schools in the province in the past week, and officials say in-class learning won't resume for some students until later this month.

There are now 89 active COVID-19 cases in the province, and five people are hospitalized with the disease.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 15, 2020.
