Effective at 12 pm noon on Friday, September 4, 2020, the Town of Sackville, New Brunswick, will require people to wear masks in all indoor public areas of Municipal buildings. This includes Town Hall, the Visitor Information Centre (including the Sackville Craft Gallery), the Sackville Public Library, along with the Bill Johnstone Memorial Activity Centre, and the Tantramar Veterans’ Memorial Civic Centre upon opening to the public. In addition to current physical distancing measures and hand hygiene, wearing masks, which is a proven preventative and respectful measure, will protect the entire community, and will allow everyone to feel more confident in Town buildings.
“We must continue to be vigilant and do what we can to minimize the impact of a potential second wave of COVID-19”, said Mayor John Higham. “Mandating masks in the indoor public areas of our Municipal buildings will play a key role in protecting people who use these buildings, while also demonstrating leadership for organizations in our community who may wish to implement a similar requirement in their own public spaces.”
The Town appreciates the cooperation of the public with this initiative and encourage everyone to take the Community Commitment, which can be found at www.sackville.com.
