City announces COVID-19 vaccination or testing policy for municipal employees, Members of Council, and workplaces 

The City of Saint John has announced it will be implementing a COVID-19 vaccination or testing policy. The policy will take effect on September 20, 2021 and will apply to all City employees and Members of Common Council.   

The policy will require municipal employees and Members of Common Council who attend the workplace to either provide proof of full (double dose) vaccination or wear masks and undergo COVID-19 testing. 

Should an employee choose not to disclose their vaccination status, they will be required to wear a mask while at work and undergo testing.   

“The City of Saint John remains focused on providing a safe work environment for its employees and for members of the public who interact with City employees,” says Mayor Donna Reardon. 

The City will continue to monitor recommendations from the Province of New Brunswick and Department of Health to ensure the health and safety of our employees.
