New Brunswick is moving to Level 3 of the COVID-19 winter plan,  the most restrictive level, effective Friday, Jan. 14 at 11:59 p.m.

Premier Blaine Higgs made the announcement at a COVID briefing Thursday afternoon, Jan. 13, citing a record-high 104 hospitalizations and rising cases.

The lockdown will last until Jan. 30 at 11:59 p.m.

"Think of it as short-term pain for long-term gain," he said.

Under Level 3, social gatherings are limited to single household bubbles; no public gatherings are permitted; restaurants are takeout only; gyms, salons and entertainment centres are closed, and faith services are allowed only outdoors or virtually.

But non-essential retail will remain at Level 2 instead of being reduced to contactless pickup or delivery only.

Sadly, the Anglican Parish of Woodstock will be pivoting to on-line services only, beginning Jan. 16 until Jan. 30, 2022.  The services will be livestreamed to Facebook at 10:30 am each Sunday and available anytime afterwards for viewing.  We hope to resume in-person worship beginning Feb. 6, 2022. 

May God keep you safe and well.  Hold fast!  We we get through this!
