Beginning October 29, 2021 at 6pm, most of Zone 2 (Saint John Area) will enter a 14-day circuit breaker event. As previously noted, people are not allowed to travel into circuit breaker areas, unless it is for essential reasons. Non-essential businesses (e.g. cinemas and quick service restaurants) can continue to operate in the circuit breaker areas but proof of vaccination is required and masks are required indoors, except when seated to eat and/or drink. Retail is considered essential thus, proof of vaccination is not required but physical distancing and masking (indoors) is required.

People from outside a circuit breaker area can travel into a circuit breaker area to attend an event or frequent a business where proof of vaccination is required. People from outside a circuit breaker area cannot travel into a circuit breaker area to frequent a retail establishment given that there are no proof of vaccination requirements.
