March 20, 2020

CMTNB Members,

The Department of Health and the Office of the Premier held a press conference on Thursday March 19, 2020 at which time a provincial state of emergency was declared in response to COVID-19.

The directive from the provincial government states “All regulated health services providers will cease operations unless the services to be provided are to address essential health care or an emergency health-care situation.”

Massage Therapy is not considered an essential health care service; therefore, as directed by the provincial government, registered massage therapists in NB will cease operations until the state of emergency has been lifted.

Please refer to the news release below.
