Peel Plaza Reopening to the Public

Thu June 4, 2020
Beginning on Monday, June-8-2020, the front doors at 1 Peel Plaza will reopen to the public. “I know the changes to our normal office routine has been disruptive to many,” says SJPF Chief Steph Drolet. “As we reopen to the public, a reminder that new protocol is in place for anyone that has business to conduct in the building,” adds Chief Drolet.

Among the many changes are a hand washing station in place near the front doors. Anyone entering and exiting the building must wash their hands. Markings are on the lobby floor to help people navigate which direction they are encouraged to travel. No more than 3 people are permitted in the lobby at any given time and seating will only be available to no more than 2 people at any given time.

“Staff at the front desk are well versed on the new protocols and are here to assist and help the public as always,” says Chief Drolet. “I want to thank everyone for their patience as we made changes to our normal operating standard and thank everyone for adhering to the new protocols to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff,” adds Chief Drolet.

The front doors at Peel Plaza were closed to the public on March-23-2020 in accordance with New Brunswick Public Health and Safety to flatten the COVID-19 curve.
