The Salisbury Village Office at 56 Douglas Street is accessible by appointment only.

It is with great sadness that the Municipal Council and employees of the Village of Salisbury learned of the passing of our former mayor, Ruth Jackson on May 26, 2020.
Ruth was mayor of the village for many years, from 1992 to 2004, after having served as municipal councillor from 1983-1989. An avid volunteer in the community, it is obvious that she devoted her life to the development of her municipality and the well-being of its citizens.
"Her commitment to the citizens of this community will never be forgotten. We send our deepest condolences and prayers to her family and loved ones during this difficult time,” said Mayor Terry Keating. "I encourage people to share Ruth’s best moments and accomplishments on social media to celebrate her life and achievements.“
Mayor, Council, and Staff of the Village of Salisbury would like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family of our former Mayor, Councillor, and friend. Ruth was an incredible person and leader who cared deeply about her community and devoted much of her life to public service. Salisbury is a better place because of her love for this community. She will be missed.
UPDATED 4pm, June 8, 2020 > With 24 active cases of the Coronavirus, including nine announced on the afternoon of June 8th, New Brunswick’s Campbellton region (Zone 5) remains at Phase 2 (Orange) of the Province’s Recovery Plan. However, for the rest of the province, June 5th marked another key step in Phase 3 (Yellow).
A further reduction in restrictions includes allowing indoor gatherings in private homes of 10 people or fewer, and outdoor public gatherings of 50 people or fewer with physical distancing. As well, religious services with 50 people or fewer, including weddings and funerals, can take place with physical distancing. Elective surgeries will increase. Outdoor visitation will be permitted, limited to two visitors, at long-term care facilities. Low-contact team sports (for example, baseball) are now permitted with conditions. Playgrounds are open (more). Also allowed to open now, with physical distancing and capacity limits, are public swimming pools, waterparks, gyms, and dance studios. All of the specifics can be found in the NB Recovery Plan.
Meantime, the Province is serious about people wearing face-coverings. The latest directives from NB Public Health under the COVID-19 State of Emergency state that people are strongly encouraged to have a mask with them at all times when in a public area so they can put it on if physical distancing of 2m cannot be maintained (June_6_clarification).
Nine new cases of COVID-19 were announced in the June 8th update by NB Public Health. Of the 146 confirmed cases in the province to date, there has been one death and 121 recoveries. Of the 24 active cases, all in Zone 5 (Campbellton region), five are in hospital with none in ICU. There have been 34,400 tests conducted so far.
