News Release Phase 1 in effect

June 16, 2021

New Brunswick has entered Phase One of the Path to Green.

In this phase, the guidelines include the following:

  • No isolation or testing is required for those travelling to New Brunswick from the following select regions: Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, the Avignon and Témiscouata regions of Quebec, and Cumberland County in Nova Scotia.
  • Cross border commuters and truck drivers are no longer subjected to testing and isolation requirements.
  • Other workers, including rotational workers, travelling from outside the select regions, are required to isolate and take a COVID-19 test between days five and seven before they can discontinue isolation, unless they have an existing work-isolation plan. This is a reduction from the previous 14-day requirement and will be eliminated in Phase 2 of the Path to Green.
  • Indoor informal gatherings are limited to 20 or fewer, while indoor formal gatherings can be up to 50 per cent of the venue’s capacity with an operational plan. Outdoor informal gatherings are permitted with two metres of distancing between groups and outdoor formal gatherings are permitted at maximum capacity with two metres of distancing between groups and an operational plan.
  • Organized sporting activities are permitted but restricted to teams based in the select regions.
  • Faith gatherings can take place with a maximum 50 per cent venue capacity and with the choir at least four metres from the congregation.

All travel into the province must still be registered with GNB. Learn more. 

Approved work-isolation plans for critical infrastructure workers outside of the provinces/regions noted above remain in effect and the isolation protocols must still be followed. New applications are also still being accepted. 

All other Public Health guidelines remain in effect, including screening for symptoms, maintaining physical distancing, masking, cleaning and sanitizing.
