Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve notice that some people are not following the rules established by the province regarding physical distancing. To whom can I address my concerns?

In order to answer your questions about compliance with the state of emergency, you can call the NB Government line (1-844-462-8387) seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Why are you closing municipal facilities?

The Town of Shediac is following the recommendations of the New Brunswick Chief Medical Officer of Health to avoid gatherings of more than 150 people and to maintain a social distance of at least 2 metres.

As well, the municipality has a responsibility, as an employer, to protect its employees’ health. Our goal is to maintain a relatively low rate of absenteeism among our staff so that we can continue to provide our residents with essential services.

Are the parks and trails open?

Outdoor facilities like the sliding hill at Pascal Poirier Park, playgrounds, dog park, and skate park are closed in order to follow the recommendations on avoiding gatherings. Public trails remain accessible. However, users must respect social distancing of 6 feet (2 metres).

Is waste collection taking place as scheduled?

There is no change to the schedule for regular residential collection. Please note, however, that Eco360’s Mobile Waste Depots have been cancelled until further notice, and they are asking that all tissues or other hygienic materials that could be contaminated go into the clear bags as opposed to blue. Please visit the Eco360 website at https://www.eco360.ca/ for an update on COVID-19 and waste management in the region.
