All areas of New Brunswick except Zone 5 are moving to the next phase of the Yellow level of the provincial government’s COVID-19 recovery plan from June 19th.
What is allowed in Yellow Level:
- Overnight camps will be allowed to open.
- Indoor visits with one visitor at a time for residents of long-term care facilities will be permitted if the facilities are able to do so. (Unless the visitor requires support, in which case, two visitors at a time will be allowed.)
- New Brunswick residents no longer need to self-isolate when returning from work in another Canadian province or territory but they should self-monitor.
- Canadian residents owning property in New Brunswick will be permitted to enter the province provided they self-isolate for 14 days, or the duration of their visit if it is shorter than 14 days.
- Canadian residents can visit family members in New Brunswick provided they self-isolate for 14 days, or the duration of their visit if it is shorter than 14 days.
- All organized sports are permitted with appropriate distancing and sanitizing.
- A cap on the number of people gathering in controlled venues is lifted. Occupancy is based on the ability to maintain physical distancing between participants that are not close friends and family. This includes churches, swimming pools, saunas, waterparks, rinks, indoor recreational facilities and organized sports which previously had a gathering limit of 50 people.
- Venues with indoor events with controlled entry or controlled seating are required to maintain records of users’ contact information to allow Public Health to conduct targeted follow-up should there be a COVID-19 exposure at the facility.
If the virus infection numbers remain manageable, the following restrictions are anticipated to be lifted, effective Friday, June 26:
- All remaining businesses can open with appropriate distancing and sanitizing, and operational plans respecting Public Health guidelines.
- Zone 5 will move fully into the Yellow level with the rest of the province provided the outbreak continues to be managed.
What is Allowed in Zone 5
Zone 5 remains at the Orange level of the province’s COVID-19 recovery plan.

- Non-regulated health professionals and businesses such as acupuncturists and naturopaths cannot operate at this time.
- Personal services businesses such as barbers, hair stylists, spas, estheticians, manicurists, pedicurists, and tattoo artists cannot operate at this time.
