COVID-19 Updates

The Town of Hampton recognizes that when the province returns to a Green phase of COVID-19 recovery, it does not represent the end of the pandemic. As a community, a province and a country, we are now learning to live with COVID-19 and its variants. We will continue to practice preventative public health measures. As noted by the Government of New Brunswick, best practices of personal protective measures and health hygiene will not only help prevent the spread of COVID-19 but many other respiratory illnesses such as the cold and influenza. This is particularly important for those who are under-vaccinated and vulnerable. Once the Mandatory Order is removed the Public Health Act and the New Brunswick Reportable Diseases and Events Guide will remain in effect. The Town will adhere to Public Health recommendations and guidance. 

The Town of Hampton is reviewing our daily operations and will consider how protective health measures can be maintained or adopted to promote health and well-being
in the long-term.

As we begin to reconnect and resume activities, we recognize that some residents may struggle with the return to Green. We ask that residents and employees be kind
and supportive through this transition.  As a Town we continue to encourage our employees, residents and visitors to get fully-vaccinated but recognize that there are those who will not be full vaccinated, and we must ensure that they are not subject to stigmatization.  Additional health measures include face coverings and physical distancing hand washing and respiratory etiquette, cleaning and disinfecting, staying home when sick and getting tested when symptomatic.

Mask use and physical distancing are no longer mandatory in Town facilities, but the Town encourages those who are under-vaccinated, vulnerable or who personally
feel more comfortable with a face mask to continue with this personal protective practice. We strongly encourage face masks and physically distancing
among all employees and residents when illness levels are high in our community and will foster a non-discriminatory atmosphere where individuals feel
comfortable and welcome  to wear a non-medical mask and to keep their distance. All plexiglass and other protective barriers will remain in place in Town
Facilities. Hand sanitizer and/or hand washing facilities will continue to be available at Town Facilities at entrances and exits. We will continue to have
signs visible to remind employees, residents and visitors of hand washing and respiratory hygiene. The Town of Hampton will continue regular cleaning and
disinfecting practices implemented during the pandemic.

We thank our employees, residents and visitors for their actions since the pandemic began.
