The expansion of the guideline sees exemptions for children under 2, any children attending a licensed early education and child care facility and those unable to wear face coverings for medical reasons.

New from New Brunswick Public Heath: “Effective on Tuesday, June 9, the requirement to wear a face covering in any location in which physical distancing of 2 metres is not possible, is extended to everyone entering a building open to the general public.”
