COVID-19: Moncton/Zone 1 to Return to Yellow (Oct. 22, 2020)

As hoped, New Brunswick Public Health has announced that it will advance Zone 1 (Moncton region) to Phase 3/Yellow of the Coronavirus Recovery Plan, effective 12am on Oct. 23rd ( click HERE for Oct. 22nd NB press release ). This means all businesses are now permitted to reopen provided they are operating under a COVID-19 operational plan. However, when it comes to facemasks they still remain mandatory in public spaces, including retail establishments, malls, service centres, public transport and local government offices – and it must be noted that community facemasks are not a substitute for physical distancing.
