COVID-19: Single-Household Bubbles for NB Thanksgiving
The Province is cracking down in hopes of slowing the fourth wave of COVID-19.
All New Brunswickers must limit their contacts to their single household during the Thanksgiving long weekend, between Friday, October 8th at 6pm and Monday, October 11th at 11:59pm.
Meantime, the provincial government has announced that a "circuit breaker" will be put in place in certain areas of the province for 14 days beginning at 6pm on Friday, October 8th. The areas that will be impacted are Zone 1 (Moncton region), as far north as and including Sainte-Anne-de-Kent; Zone 3 in the upper Saint John River valley north of and including Florenceville-Bristol; and all of Zone 4 (Edmundston region).
The circuit breaker restrictions will include the following:
- People must limit their contacts to their single household;
- No private indoor or outdoor gatherings are permitted;
- Travel to or from circuit breaker regions is restricted, except for those who must travel for essential reasons, including work, health services, child custody, childcare or post-secondary education, or travel to events where proof of vaccination is required;
- All schools will remain open, unless advised otherwise by Public Health;
- Businesses, entertainment centres and events may remain open and can continue to admit people who show proof of full vaccination and a government-issued ID (Children under 12 accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult will also be admitted).
