Details on New Brunswick’s third recovery phase are expected to come on Friday morning and could allow more businesses to open along with more freedom for social interaction.
It has been exactly two weeks since the second phase began, allowing the majority of businesses and registered health professions to begin operating again under strict controls.
Materials circulated by the government when the phased recovery approach was announced suggest that hairstylists and barbers could be allowed to open along with churches and fitness centres.
Family bubbles may also be extended from two households to “family and friends” and physically distant gatherings from 10 to 50 people.
New Brunswick reported it’s first new case of COVID-19 in two weeks on Thursday. The total of confirmed cases currently sits at 121 with one active.
Premier Blaine Higgs and Dr. Jennifer Russell are expected to provide details on what is and isn’t included in the newest phase during a 10:30 a.m. briefing.
