Stay Home, says NB EMO (Apr. 6, 2020)

From the New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization:

- Residents of New Brunswick are reminded to comply with restrictions imposed under the State of Emergency. This means keeping travel to a strict minimum. Enforcement officers are now fining people for violating the mandatory order. Failing to obey the order has serious consequences, with fines ranging from $292.50 to $10,200.
- Although all playgrounds in the province are closed, some municipal public parks and walking trails remain open as long as physical and social distancing measures are followed. People are reminded to keep at least two metres from others at all times, do not form a crowd, and, if they witness non-compliant gatherings, contact a peace officer by calling 1-844-462-8387 (8:30am to 4:30pm).
- New Brunswick is moving from education to enforcement to protect the lives of its residents. Those who are not following provincial orders and those gathering in closed parks will be fined.
