New Brunswick’s Path To Green- what this means for Provincial Events

The provincial government announced guidelines yesterday outlining the path toward the Green level of the COVID-19 recovery plan.

The plan includes three phases to slowly loosen restrictions, with target dates based on anticipated vaccination rates and low numbers of COVID-19 hospitalizations.

“Green is coming and it is closer than we imagined,” said Health Minister Dorothy Shephard. “We are in this position thanks to the hard work being done across our province to roll out vaccines quickly and efficiently.”

The first phase is expected to come into effect on June 7, as long as at least 75 per cent of New Brunswickers 12 and older have received their first dose of a vaccine; hospitalizations remain low; and all health zones remain at the Yellow alert level.

New Brunswick’s path to Green is available online.

Golf NB has and will continue to follow the directives from the Province of New Brunswick and continue to plan to conduct the remainder of our 2021 championship schedule while balancing the needs of our competitors and host venues to the best of our ability.

We will provide more information as it becomes available. On behalf of Golf NB, we would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.
