COVID-19: New Brunswick Goes Orange as Cases Spike (Jan. 5, 2021)

    With 27 more cases announced by NB Public Health on Tuesday, Jan. 5th, the entire province is being downgraded to the more restrictive "Orange" stage of New Brunswick's coronavirus recovery plan. This goes into effect at 12:00am, Jan. 6th. The move comes as the province experienced a doubling of its number of cases in less than six days, bringing the number of active cases to 80 and resulting in some strong words from Premier Blaine Higgs:
    “In spite of aggressive messaging prior to and during the holiday season, we knew that some would selfishly ignore the rules. There is a risk that our health-care system could be faced with hundreds of new cases each day and would quickly be overwhelmed. We must act swiftly and decisively to ensure that does not happen.”
    The many rules under Orange include a single household bubble and mandatory facemasks in both indoor and outdoor public spaces.

COVID-19: NB moves Zones 1 and 3 to Yellow (Dec. 7, 2020)

An early Christmas present for Zones 1 and 3 from New Brunswick Public Health was announced on Sunday. Both the Moncton and Fredericton regions have been returned to the less-restrictive Yellow phase of the province's Coronavirus recovery plan (read the full press release here). Reasons for the change in the two regions include a declining case load and high levels of public adherence to restrictions aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19. Meantime, the Saint John region (Zone 2) remains at the more strict Orange phase due to more cases in that region and a greater risk of outbreaks for the time being. There were two new cases of COVID-19 reported in New Brunswick on Dec. 7th -- one each in zones 3 and 4 (Edmundston region). There are currently 81 active cases in the province, three of which require hospitalization, two in intensive care. Since the global pandemic began, there have been 536 cases in New Brunswick, 448 recoveries, and seven deaths. To date, 133,868 tests have been conducted.

New Equipment at Parkin Street Playground

The Village of Salisbury Department of Works and Maintenance wishes to inform residents that the new playground equipment installed this week (Nov. 23-27) at the Parkin Street Playground can now be enjoyed. However, there is one small area that remains cordoned off for safety until a specific component arrives for installation at a later date. The existing swings can also be used, but will eventually be removed for the installation of a new swing set in 2-3 weeks. When the time comes, the new swing set will include a generation swing and an inclusive swing.
