Public Health follows a standard process when addressing instances where the public may have been exposed to a case of COVID-19. In cases where record-keeping is able to identify anyone who may have been exposed, officials contact these individuals directly and do not issue a separate announcement. In cases where officials cannot be certain of exactly who may have been exposed to the virus in a given location, Public Health issues an announcement to alert those who could have been affected and provides instructions.
Public Health has identified a potential public exposure to the virus at the following location in Zone 4:
- Martin Mazda on Jan. 25, 26, 27 and 28 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. (11 Pérusse St., Edmundston).
Reminder of Red and Orange levels and lockdown rules
Zone 1 (Moncton region) is at the Red level and Zone 4 (Edmundston region) remains in lockdown.
All other zones remain in the Orange level under the province’s mandatory order.
