    My concern here would be for whomever else was flying on those particular planes that brought these workers to NB. Hopefully everyone on those flights were notified and requested to self isolate.

    It’s good to see they were changed to Zone 1. They really need to stop bringing in foreign workers until this is all over.

    Why not test before they come
