Veteran forward Andy Andreoff, young winger Dmytro Timashov linked to Islanders

  Veteran forward Andy Andreoff, young winger Dmytro Timashov linked to Islanders Official confirmation on anything New York Islanders-related is difficult to come by these days, but it appears as though two more players can be added to the unofficial organizational depth chart. Arthur Staple of The Athletic tweets that the team has signed Andy Andreoff and notes that Dmytro Timashov may also be back. No contract details were included, other than Staple speculating that Andreoff would be getting a two-way deal. © Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Forward Andy Andreoff.

Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province's chief medical officer of health, declined to reveal any additional information Tuesday about the person under the age of 19 who is hospitalized with COVID-19. © Ed Hunter/CBC Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province's chief medical officer of health, declined to reveal any additional information Tuesday about the person under the age of 19 who is hospitalized with COVID-19.

New Brunswick has 109 new cases of COVID-19 and 63 people in hospital with the virus, 27 of them in intensive care.

The fourth wave is "hitting our province very hard," Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell said Tuesday, after the province surpassed 1,000 active cases for the first time Monday, and now stands at 1,092.

A surge in new infections like this hasn't happened before and will likely continue for "some time," she said, noting it will take roughly a week for the two-week circuit breaker, which began Friday night in the "hot zones," to take effect.

Evander Kane, Tomas Hertl expected to be back with Sharks in 2021-22

  Evander Kane, Tomas Hertl expected to be back with Sharks in 2021-22 It seems both Evander Kane and Tomas Hertl be back in San Jose in 2021-22, but can the two coexist?Kane tells ESPN’s Linda Cohn that he expects the NHL’s current investigation into allegations that he bet on NHL games, and Sharks games in particular, to go nowhere.

The province's focus now is on the infections that develop into more serious illness and lead to hospitalizations and deaths.

People who are unvaccinated are 18 times more likely to become seriously ill if they contract the virus, Russell told the COVID briefing.

But there now are, and will continue to be, so-called breakthrough cases in people who are fully vaccinated, she said.

Of the 109 new cases announced Tuesday, 72 – or 66 per cent – are unvaccinated, five – or five per cent – are partially vaccinated, and 32 – or 29 per cent – are fully vaccinated.

Russell told reporters she's "absolutely" worried such breakthrough cases could dissuade unvaccinated people from getting their shots, or partially vaccinated people from getting their second dose.

Flyers star Kevin Hayes out six to eight weeks following abdominal surgery

  Flyers star Kevin Hayes out six to eight weeks following abdominal surgery Hayes will miss at least the first 10 or so games of the regular season should the timeline prove accurate. In fact, the head coach specifically noted how difficult the first month of the season will be without Hayes and Allison, who also made quite an impact in his short time last season. The 23-year-old Allison scored four goals and seven points in 14 games with the Flyers after showing he was more than ready for the jump to the NHL. Selected 52nd overall in 2016, he could very well push up the depth chart this season as the team tries to find a new identity.

That's why she went over the numbers to help "frame the risks and put everything into context."

The vaccine is very effective but not perfect, she said. It is "very good" at preventing serious illness, hospitalization, and death.

Since Aug. 1, the rate of ICU admissions for unvaccinated patients is 33.4 cases for every 100,000 unvaccinated New Brunswickers. By comparison, the rate among those fully vaccinated has been just 1.8 cases, Russell said, urging everyone eligible to get their shot.

Of Tuesday's 63 hospitalizations, 48 people – or 76 per cent – are not fully vaccinated. Of the 27 people in ICU, 22 – or 82 per cent – are unvaccinated.

As of Tuesday, 81.6 per cent of New Brunswickers age 12 and older are fully vaccinated, up from 81.5 per cent on Monday, while 90.8 per cent have received their first dose, up from 90.7.

Russell said she's "particularly pleased" to see the number of people getting a first dose is rising again. "This shows that our measures to encourage vaccination are having the desired effect."

Blues name Peter Chiarelli VP of hockey operations

  Blues name Peter Chiarelli VP of hockey operations Chiarelli, 57, had already been working for the Blues as a consultant but will now have an expanded role in the front office. The longtime executive last held a full-time position in 2019 with the Edmonton Oilers, but he was fired early that year halfway through another disappointing season. There’s no lack of experience assuming the role for the blues, as Chiarelli was an NHL GM for 13 consecutive seasons between the Boston Bruins and Oilers. Before that, he held various positions with the Ottawa Senators, including assistant GM.

But 128,000 New Brunswickers aged 12 and older are still not fully protected, including 69,000 who are unvaccinated, she said, adding she's concerned about those numbers and concerned about those individuals.

Another "tens of thousands" of children under 12 are not yet eligible for vaccination.

All provincial government employees, staff in long-term care facilities and staff and volunteers in schools and licensed early learning and child-care facilities must be fully vaccinated by Nov. 19.

COVID-19 hospitalizations are expected to increase by six per cent over the next week, said Health Minister Dorothy Shephard.

That's based on the province's latest modelling, she told the COVID-19 briefing Tuesday.

"That actually is less than what was predicted, let's say, a week ago at about 13 per cent. And it could have gone as high as 30 per cent without measures being taken."

Sixty-threepeople are being treated in hospital because of the virus and 27 of them require intensive care, an increase of seven of each from Monday.

One of the people hospitalized is under the age of 19 — a first for the province.

Senators trade Logan Brown, fourth-rounder to Blues for Zach Sanford

  Senators trade Logan Brown, fourth-rounder to Blues for Zach Sanford Brown was a first-round pick of Ottawa (11th overall) in 2016, but despite showing flashes of upside in the minors, he has yet to establish himself in the NHL.  He had nine points in 13 AHL contests with Belleville last season but got into only one game with the Senators in 2020-21 and has just 30 career NHL appearances over his three professional campaigns.  The 23-year-old recently re-signed a one-year, two-way contract worth the league minimum of $750K and will be a restricted free agent next summer.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell said officials aren't able to predict a downturn in new confirmed cases of COVID "quite yet."

"We are waiting for probably another seven days before we see the cases start to drop," she said.

Projections released to CBC by the Department of Health last week showed hospitalizations could hit 120 by early November if contact rates don't dramatically drop.

Seeing fewer people reduces contact rates, as does reducing the duration of contact, Sanjeev Seahra, professor and chair of the University of New Brunswick's department of mathematics and statistics in Fredericton, who worked on the projections with the Department of Health, has said. Other measures, such as physical distancing and wearing a mask also help.

If New Brunwickers reduce their contact rate by 20 per cent, that number would peak at 70 within a couple of weeks, according to the graph. No other accompanying data was provided.

With a 40 per cent reduction, there would be no hospitalized COVID patients by Christmas, the graph showed, while a 60 per cent decrease would see hospitalizations drop to about 20 by the end of the month.

No modelling for ICU admissions, new cases or deaths has been released.

All Vitalité Health Network hospitals moved to the COVID-19 "red alert" level Tuesday and Horizon Health Network hospitals and health-care centres will follow suit on Wednesday.

Red Wings' Jakub Vrana leaves practice early with shoulder injury

  Red Wings' Jakub Vrana leaves practice early with shoulder injury Less than 10 minutes into his first session back with the team, Vrana suffered a shoulder injury and had to leave. Head coach Jeff Blashill did not have a prognosis after practice, stating only that Vrana would be “re-evaluated later.” As Allen notes, Detroit was missing Tyler Bertuzzi for nearly all of last season and don’t need another core scorer with a nagging injury again this year. Hopefully Vrana’s shoulder ailment is nothing serious.

The changes will allow the regional health authorities to redeploy staff to maintain emergency services and intensive care units, caring for COVID-19 patients and those who are critically ill, officials have said.

All non-essential health-care services will be "greatly reduced" or temporarily suspended, Vitalité has said.

Affected services include:

  • Elective surgeries
  • Ambulatory care services
  • Professional services, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and nutrition
  • Non-urgent medical imaging services, such as X-rays and scans

Horizon said some of its non-urgent elective surgeries, medical procedures and outpatient appointments may need to be postponed as well.

All affected patients and clients will be contacted directly by Horizon or their health-care provider if their non-urgent surgery, procedure or appointment needs to be cancelled, it said in a news release Tuesday.

"If you have not been contacted, please attend your appointment as planned."

Outpatient appointments include: appointments at ambulatory outpatient clinics and professional services outpatient appointments, such as therapeutic services, blood and specimen collection, diagnostic imaging (X-ray), electrodiagnostics and respiratory therapy, the release said.

Both Vitalité and Horizon have also suspended all hospital visits.

New Brunswick is "exploring" expanding its use of rapid testing as a way to prevent the coronavirus from spreading, said Health Minister Dorothy Shephard.

"There have been questions about whether or not we could use them … for certain medical appointments, if we can ensure the continuity of services in using them," she said.

N.B. COVID-19 roundup: 2 more deaths, 130 new cases, Horizon moves to 'red alert'

  N.B. COVID-19 roundup: 2 more deaths, 130 new cases, Horizon moves to 'red alert' New Brunswick recorded two more COVID-related deaths and 130 new cases Friday, and the Horizon Health Network announced it will move all of its hospitals and health-care centres to the "red alert" COVID-19 level on Wednesday.A person in their 80s in the Moncton region, Zone 1, and a person 90 or older in the Campbellton region, Zone 5, have died, putting the province's death toll at 72.

"But they will all be based on supply."

Last Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement saying, "the Government of Canada remains ready to respond to any requests from the Government of New Brunswick, including supplying additional rapid testing kits."

He issued the statement following a telephone meeting with Premier Blaine Higgs.

Two weeks ago, Higgs also suggested the province might move toward more rapid testing.

"I think we can start to move in that directionso it gives people more flexibility to determine their health and not lose time," he had said.

Some experts have called for wider use of rapid tests in the province, saying they could "put a lid" on transmission by identifying asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic people and helping to prevent spread.

New Brunswick started using rapid testing in schools Tuesday. Unvaccinated students who have been identified as a close contact of a positive case of COVID will now be provided with a five-day or 15-day supply of the tests, depending on the last possible exposure date to the confirmed case, to help reduce the time they need to self-isolate and to minimize disruptions to learning, Shephard said.

Free self-screening rapid test kits are also available to small- and medium-size businesses and organizations through the chambers of commerce as part of a national program.

Russell said the program has been successful but one "hiccup" is that some people who have been provided with the test kits don't understand the steps they need to follow if they test positive, including notifying Public Health.

Larger employers, with more than 300 employees, can apply for rapid test kits on the province's website.

The 109 new cases confirmed Tuesday are spread across all seven health zones. Here is the breakdown:

New Brunswick has had 5,367 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began, with 4,199 recoveries so far and 75 COVID-related deaths.

A total of 493,631 tests have been conducted to date.

Megan Mitton, the MLA for Memramcook-Tantramar and the Green Party's health critic, is calling for an independent investigation into the COVID-19 outbreak at a Sackville nursing home and for the government to be more transparent about outbreaks at other facilities.

As of Oct. 8, eight people at Drew Nursing Home have died, and 39 people have tested positive, including 29 residents and 10 staff – more than any other long-term care facility during the fourth wave.

"It feels like the government has been asleep at the wheel in Sackville," Mitton said in a statement Tuesday regarding the month-long outbreak.

"Residents and their families need answers. Why wasn't this outbreak immediately brought under control by PROMT [the provincial rapid outbreak management team] and the Department of Social Development, as past outbreaks in long-term care facilities have been? What went wrong?"

Mitton also wants the government to release information about which facilities have had outbreaks since the fourth wave began, including the number of cases and deaths at each.

Health Minister Dorothy Shephard said the government will give as much information as it can about the COVID-19 outbreak at the Drew Nursing Home and outbreaks at other long-term care facilities, while still protecting the privacy of individuals. © Ed Hunter/CBC Health Minister Dorothy Shephard said the government will give as much information as it can about the COVID-19 outbreak at the Drew Nursing Home and outbreaks at other long-term care facilities, while still protecting the privacy of individuals.

On Sept. 22, the government announced PROMT teams had been activated at 15 locations across the province, including nursing homes, a shelter and First Nation community. But no update has been provided since then.

"We are now seeing the same type of crisis at the Drew Nursing Home that other provinces experienced during previous waves. What is happening in long-term care facilities elsewhere in the province?" Mitton said. "It seems as if the government is trying to sweep this under the rug."

Health Minister Dorothy Shephard said it's "not unlike opposition to call for independent investigations into pretty much anything."

She stressed she's not downplaying the significance of the Drew Nursing Home outbreak. "It has been a difficult time in that facility."

But she contends the government evaluates every outbreak and has been "very transparent."

"If they can't get answers to their questions, we could take it under advisement. But I'm not sure of any questions that they would ask that we wouldn't answer," Shephard said.

New Brunswickers aged six months and older are being encouraged to get a free flu shot at a clinic or through a primary care giver, starting Tuesday, to help reduce the strain COVID-19 has put on the health-care system.

People age 65 and older can get "an enhanced high-dose influenza vaccine," which gives them a stronger immune response and extra protection, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jennifer Russell has said.

Keeping people healthy this flu season is more important than ever, Russell said in a statement.

"By getting this year's flu shot, we are helping to reduce hospital visits from influenza-related illnesses and freeing up those resources for areas where they are needed most."

Residents can be immunized at a variety of clinics offered at pharmacies and community health centres or through other primary-care providers, such as physicians, public health nurses, midwives and paramedics.

Out-of-province students can get their flu shots through student health services at their respective post-secondary institutions. New residents and non-residents without a Medicare card can get flu shots free of charge from a pharmacist.

The Department of Health will be including the high-dose flu vaccine as part of its immunization program for all elderly residents, including those in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes and adult residential facilities.

The flu shot can be safely administered at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine, Russell has said.

Public Health is offering an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine booster dose to seniors in long-term care homes and other communal settings who have already received two doses of a vaccine.

Older adults have a higher risk of serious complications from influenza, including pneumonia, heart failure, hospitalization or even death. The high-dose vaccines contain four times the antigens of regular vaccines to boost the immune system, according to Public Health.

Public Health recommends that people who have been at a possible public exposure site and are not fully vaccinated get a COVID test, even if they don't have symptoms. They can book an appointment online or call Tele-Care 811.

If they do have symptoms, they must isolate while they await their results.

For people who are fully vaccinated, Public Health recommends they monitor for symptoms for 14 days after the possible exposure and get a COVID test if symptoms develop.

Anyone who frequented the locations at the specified dates and times should also avoid visiting settings with vulnerable populations such as nursing homes, correctional facilities and shelters for the next 14 days.

People concerned they might have COVID-19 can take a self-assessment test online.

Public Health says symptoms of the illness have included a fever above 38 C, a new or worsening cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, a new onset of fatigue, and difficulty breathing.

In children, symptoms have also included purple markings on the fingers and toes.

People with one of those symptoms should stay at home, call 811 or their doctor and follow instructions.
