FREDERICTON (GNB) – All Service New Brunswick Centres will reopen by July 13, eligible provincial licences and certain other documentation will be extended, and Public Health reported no new cases of COVID-19 today.
All zones in New Brunswick continue to remain in the yellow level.
Service New Brunswick announced all 33 of its service centres will be opened by July 13. However, the public is reminded that most services can be accessed online or through Tele-Services at 1-888-762-8600. SNB is looking at ways to offer more high demand services online like the written drivers test and change of address.
“We are pleased that we are reopening all of our centres and that people are embracing the convenience of doing their transactions online,” said Service New Brunswick Minister Sherry Wilson. “Our plan is to increase our service offerings both online and through Teleservices to ensure fewer service disruptions as part of our preparations for a possible second wave of COVID-19.”
Customer care agents have been working throughout the pandemic, answering more than 30,000 calls to the new COVID-19 information line, as well as processing the services available online and through Teleservices.
