Covid 19: 

The big Headline that broke heading into the weekend is that we are going to green later this week...

So late Friday night (11:59p) we are free to gather in big groups, free to not wear a mask, we'll go full-capacity in restaurants and entertainment venues, and more... BTW, yesterday NB had no new cases, six active cases, and over 64% fully vaccinated.

... from the press release

Premier Blaine Higgs announced today (Friday) that the province’s mandatory order will not be renewed on July 30 at 11:59 p.m., which will remove all restrictions in the province as it goes to Green.“We have surpassed our goal of 75 per cent of the eligible population with their first vaccine and are now at 81 per cent,” said Higgs. “By the end of next week, the percentage of eligible New Brunswickers vaccinated with the second dose will be high enough to balance out many of the risks of living with COVID-19. With our experiences of the past 17 months, low case numbers and climbing vaccination rates, we believe we are safe to take this next step and learn to live with COVID-19 without the mandatory order.”

The end of the mandatory order will:

Lift all mandatory travel and public health restrictions that have been in place over the course of the pandemic.

Lift all provincial border restrictions; provincial border checks will cease, and registration will no longer be required to enter New Brunswick from anywhere in Canada.

Lift all limits on gatherings and the number of people within facilities. Capacity limits in theatres, restaurants and stores will no longer be required.

End the requirement to wear face masks in public.
