Province of New Brunswick Implements Mandatory Masks
The provincial government announced on Thursday, October 8th that masks will become mandatory in most indoor public places effective at midnight.
Masks will become mandatory in most indoor places. This includes:
- public spaces where the public and employees interact (retail businesses, malls, service centres, places of worship, restaurants and bars except while eating, etc.) and organized indoor gatherings in public spaces (e.g. weddings, funerals, etc.);
- common areas like lobbies, elevators and hallways, and public shared spaces including those in private sector and government workspaces; and
- public transportation.
Continuous mask use is still required in seated venues with one metre physical distancing.
Previously existing mask policies continue to apply in hospitals, health care settings, public schools and early childhood learning facilities.
As approved by the Pandemic Task Force, children under two are exempt from wearing masks, as well as those with a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask.
We please ask that you are patient with clubs and staff as they implement new procedures that prioritize your safety and well being.
