Face Coverings or non-medical masks required in the Air Terminal Building effective August 1
Anyone who comes to the airport is required to wear a face covering or non-medical mask starting August 1. Only travelers and employees should enter the airport. *Apart from people requiring special assistance and persons returning vehicle rentals.
Taking into account Public Health and Transport Canada guidance, we require everyone in the Air Terminal Building, including employees and travelers, to wear a face covering or non-medical mask starting this Saturday, August 1. Masks are an added layer of protection and are especially helpful in settings where physical distancing is not possible. With added flights beginning in August, this will be an approach to keep employees and the travelling public safe.
The following persons are exempt from the requirement to wear a non-medical mask or face covering: infants under 2 years of age, persons with breathing difficulties unrelated to COVID-19, or those who would be unable to remove the mask without assistance.
Travellers are advised that officials from the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety (NBDPS) are now screening passengers arriving at the airport.
This screening consists of a questionnaire to determine the reason for travel. Only necessary travel is being allowed to New Brunswick for the time being during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- All passengers arriving on a flight will be questioned by a provincial official upon entering the airport. Each flight takes approximately one hour to process. Travellers may not access the baggage claim area before they go through the screening.
- The questionnaire consists of standard health questions such as the reason for entering New Brunswick and where the passenger intends to self-isolate for 14 days.
- If NBDPS finds that the passenger does not have a valid reason to enter the province per the State of Emergency, they will be denied entry to New Brunswick.
- If NBDPS finds that the passenger does not have somewhere to self-isolate for 14 days, they can be denied entry or can be ordered to a hotel to self-isolate.
- NBDPS is taking telephone numbers and addresses of all passengers arriving and could call to check in or visit the address to ensure the passenger is following the order to self-isolate.
- All hotel costs and return flight (if denied entry) are the responsibility of the passenger.
We will keep travellers updated as the pandemic situation evolves. We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.
