Sport and Recreation Guidance

Orientation sportive et récréative

Please refer to the sport and recreation guidance in the linked document above. This document outlines the GNB guidelines surrounding mandatory masking, entering public facilities, and showing proof of vaccination. These the level 2 measures start Saturday, February 12th allowing children on sports teams under the age of 12 to compete in games against another consistent team. This will be in effect until the move to Level 1 which is expected on Friday, February 18th at 11:59pm.


As New Brunswick transitions to the Green Phase of recovery, the Mandatory Order will be lifted; COVID-19 Operational Plans will no longer be required, and the province will transition to a communicable disease prevention plan. It does not represent “the end of the pandemic.” With the understanding that COVID-19 is not going to disappear any time soon, preventing the spread of this virus should still be on everyone’s agenda.

Core protective health measures remain important tools to limit the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. This is particularly important for those who are vulnerable and not vaccinated, including our 12 & under youth who represent a major demographic of the sport and recreation sector.

Recreation and sport organizations should assess and understand the level of risk of communicable disease transmission in their respective activities and apply appropriate measures when there’s an elevated risk of communicable disease. Participants may have different levels of comfort in the Green phase of recovery. Some organizations may choose to retain certain measures such as mask use and limiting large gathering which would be an appropriate approach. All are asked to foster an atmosphere where there is mutual respect and understanding and participants are supportive of each other’s personal protective habits and risk tolerances.

Public Health NB has developed a document to help guide organizations in the green phase of recovery: Living with COVID-19: Protective Health Measures . There may be complimentary documents shared with you in coming weeks as we learn more and continue on our path to recovery.

As outbreaks continue to occur in other jurisdictions and where potential for transmission amongst our youth may increase, the Sport and Recreation Branch encourages recreation and sport organizations to continue to take a responsible and cautious approach. Where applicable, measures identified in our previous directives as well as in the above document should continue to be recommended to participants and spectators.

Our Sport and Recreation consultants remain available to assist you during this transition.
