New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs said he believes that a national state of emergency is necessary for Canadians across the country to experience “consistency” during the response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“We are seeing new measures being put in place each day, and these measures can vary widely between provinces and territories,” Higgs said on Tuesday during a provincial update.
During the provincial update, New Brunswick confirmed one additional case of COVID-19 in the province on Tuesday.
Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province’s chief health officer, said the new case is a woman between the ages of 20 and 30, who lives in southeastern New Brunswick and recently returned from travel.
