Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated: June 22, 2020 | 9:12 am

    The City of Fredericton Municipal Emergency Measures Operations (MEMO) is actively monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation and taking appropriate actions to protect the public and staff while continuing to deliver essential services.

    We are following the advice and recommendations of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of New Brunswick and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

    NOTE: Don’t Flush That. While we applaud the sanitary measures your family and business are taking at this time, the City’s Water & Sewer Utility reminds residents that "flushable" wipes belong in the garbage, not the toilet. They clog the pipes in your home, as well as the City pipes, lagoons & sewage lift stations.
