Bill Kyte, co-owner with his son Thomas of Bill Kyte Well Drilling, is proud of how his province has managed the COVID-19 crisis.

“In New Brunswick, our premier and the COVID-19 team led by Dr. Jennifer Russell – that’s our chief medical officer – did a great job of leading us through this pandemic, and, for the most part, the people have bought into it,” he says. “We are quite pleased and proud of that so hopefully we will continue.”

Kyte has especially good reasons for remaining diligent: he and his wife are in the high-risk age group. The two workers Kyte and his son have on staff also have family in high-risk groups.

“We are doing everything we are supposed to,” Kyte says. “The social distancing is the big thing and, of course, when we are on the job site that is pretty hard to do. But we try to follow all the regulations and guidelines. We sanitize the vehicles every day and keep washing our hands.”
