-- #Vaccine and #Covid19 stuff:
 
* 4 cases announced yesterday and Dr. Russell said: "As the number of fully vaccinated New Brunswickers increases and as travel restrictions and border measures are eased, we expect there will be more COVID-19 cases in New Brunswick... it’s important for all New Brunswickers who are able to get their second dose to do so once they are eligible. Those who are not vaccinated will be at highest risk for having severe symptoms and hospitalization."
“I want to remind New Brunswickers that we need to continue to wear a mask in public indoor places, maintain two metres of physical distance from others, wash our hands regularly, get tested when we have symptoms and get a second vaccine dose when we are eligible,”

-- Finally something official about a story that's been going around social media... 
On June 14th, Caledonia RCMP got the call about shots fired in West River, NB  on Route 114.
Police say two guys in a white truck shot at a vehicle that was parked outside a home. Nobody was injured. Nobody was in the parked vehicle. 
It sounds like there was a bit of police chase and the cops used a spike strip or something near Edgetts Landing. 
The guys in the truck took off on foot, and that led to a heavy police presence and a lot of talk on social media with people wondering what was going on.
The next morning, officers arrested one guy from Moncton, then that afternoon a guy from Riverview turned himself in.
They're both scheduled to appear in court today (June 18th).
