Community public health measures

Public health during a global pandemic is a shared responsibility. We all have a role to play taking steps to protect all members of the community and follow public health measures. Learn more about the definitions of health measures including physical distancing and household bubbles.


COVID-19 is an unprecedented challenge. We must all do our part to protect the health and safety of our communities—and that means obeying emergency orders issued by New Brunswick Public Health.

Under New Brunswick’s declared state of emergency, residents must follow public health requirements and advisories including practicing physical distancing, maintaining personal household bubbles, avoiding non-essential travel and self-isolation. Failing to obey the mandatory order and community health measures have serious consequences with fines ranging from $292.50 to $10,200.
