COVID-19: Changes to Orange and Yellow Levels (Feb. 26, 2021)

On the eve of March Break, the New Brunswick government is introducing changes to its Coronavirus Recovery Plan Orange and Yellow levels. These take effect on February 27th. Notable adjustments are permitting travel between Orange zones, as well as being allowed to include people in other Orange zones in your "Steady 10" contacts. However, most significantly, Public Health says if the situation in New Brunswick remains stable, all zones in the province will move to an updated Yellow status as of 11:59pm on Sunday, March 7th. All of the specifics can be found via the following link: https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/news/news_release.2021.02.0148.html
Meantime, as of February 26th, the number of active cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick was down to 41, with one new case announced (in Zone 1) and nine more recoveries. To date, since the pandemic began, there have been 1,428 cases in New Brunswick, including 26 deaths. Currently, one COVID-19 patient is in hospital in intensive care.

COVID-19: Zone 1 to Return to Orange (Feb. 8, 2021)

New Brunswick's Zone 1 (Moncton region, which includes Salisbury) received some positive news with the announcement that it will return to the Orange phase of the Province's coronavirus recovery plan as of Tuesday, February 9th. Since January 19th, Zone 1 had been in the more restrictive Red phase as NB Public Health tried to get a handle on the post-Holiday Season spike in cases of COVID-19. For full details of what this change in status means for Zone 1, including your "Steady 10" contacts and what businesses are permitted to reopen, read the government press release here.
Meantime, along with the Zone 1 announcement came news that Zone 4, the Edmundston region, will no longer be under Lockdown and will enter the Red phase.
Including two cases on Monday, there are now 182 active cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick. Since the arrival of the pandemic in the province in early 2020, there have been 1,346 confirmed cases, including 20 deaths and 1,143 recoveries.

Salisbury Village Office Open with Limitations
The Village Office in Salisbury continues to be open; however, access is strictly controlled by various means due to New Brunswick Public Health and WorksafeNB directives. To this end, due to limited space inside the Village Office and the requirement to have physical distancing, there can be only ONE person at the office front counter at a time (or people, but only if they are in the same household “bubble”), with others having to wait outside until they are called into the office. Because of this, the front door at the Village Office remains locked. Please ring the doorbell for entry and the door will be unlocked for you. Again, if there is a customer ahead of you, you will be asked to please wait until that customer exits. Face-coverings (masks) are also mandatory inside municipal buildings such as the Village Office.

Salisbury Outdoor Rink and Playgrounds Closed
During this Red phase of the New Brunswick coronavirus recovery plan there is an impact on what is permitted on municipal outdoor spaces here in Salisbury. There is a Provincial directive that outdoor recreational spaces where people can congregate must be CLOSED, which in Salisbury means the outdoor skating rink on Douglas Street and any playgrounds in the village. They will be off-limits while we’re in Red.
Meantime, outdoor recreation that promotes movement alone or within a single household bubble IS allowed, ie. walking, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, and sliding (as long as it’s not creating a situation of public gathering). The Village of Salisbury thanks you for your understanding during this Red phase of the Province’s COVID-19 recovery plan.

Roadside Collection of Christmas Trees Ending

Wednesday, January 20th will be the last day that staff of the Village of Salisbury Department of Works & Maintenance will be picking up Christmas trees that are placed on the roadside within the Village limits. After Wednesday, residents are welcome to drop-off their Christmas trees at the Village of Salisbury Wastewater Treatment Facility, 47 Government Road (in the designated area. As always, make sure the trees are free of all decorations). In the meantime, please ensure that any trees left roadside until January 20th are easily accessible. Trees buried in snow will not be picked up.
