COVID-19 Update

March 20, 2020

The Government of New Brunswick has launched a new online tool to assess symptoms and to help determine whether individuals should be tested for COVID-19. Using this tool will help New Brunswickers determine when they should call the 811 line, which will reduce the volume of calls seeking basic information. You can complete this assessment for yourself or on behalf of someone else, if they are not able.

If you have symptoms:

  • Please do not visit a hospital, physician’s office, lab or healthcare facility without consulting 811 first.
  • If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911 immediately.
  • Advise them of your symptoms and travel history.

If you are experiencing symptoms associated with a health problem that is not related to Coronavirus, consult the Symptom Checker.
