N.B. reports no remaining active cases of COVID-19
Of the 118 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick, the province says all have recovered
New Brunswick is COVID-19 free, according to the latest numbers from the province.
Saturday marked the 14th straight day of no new cases in the province.
"Achieving this two-week milestone is significant," Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province's chief medical officer, said in a press release on Saturday.
"But I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for us to continue practising physical distancing, wearing face masks and staying home as much as possible."
Premier Blaine Higgs echoed the continued need for vigilance.
"We did not win the war yet and this victory may be short-lived," Higgs said in a statement.
"But what is important is that we find the balance between returning to a new normal while still staying on guard and protecting the health of our residents."

Of the 118 cases that were confirmed, all have recovered, the province says.
The province has performed 15,058 tests, with 4,835 in the Moncton area, 3,428 around Fredericton and 3,235 in the Saint John region.
Saturday's numbers make New Brunswick the only province in the country without a confirmed active case.
On Friday, there were still two active cases.
The province plans fewer press briefings from now on. They will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
