Effective June 9, in New Brunswick, everyone entering a building open to the general public must wear a face covering. Children under the age of two, children of any age while attending licensed early education and childcare facilities, and those unable to wear face coverings due to medical issues are exempt from these requirements.
The state of emergency declaration was revised Friday to require people to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose upon entering buildings, such as stores and restaurants.
“Once inside the building and if you are able to maintain physical distancing of two metres, the mask can be removed,” the government clarified in a tweet.
Up-to-date information about COVID-19, including the latest data on confirmed cases and laboratory testing in New Brunswick is available online.
