Town turns on blue lights in support of healthcare workers and first responders

Dear residents,

We have received requests asking for the Christmas Lights along the Riverfront to be turned on. Right now, we are navigating through unprecedented times and understand the lights can brighten the spirits of many people.

The Town of Riverview remains committed to delivering critical and essential services to the public, but it is also our responsibility to ensure we act in a way that reduces the spread of COVID-19.

We must continue to follow the guidelines and recommendations from New Brunswick’s Chief Medical Officer and we urge the public to do the same by adhering to social distancing protocols. To comply with the social distancing guidelines and to limit the number of people on the trails at the same time, it would not be appropriate to turn on all the tree lights at this time.  

What we must not forget during these uncertain times is the efforts of our healthcare workers and first responders, who are working tirelessly in the battle against COVID-19. As a Town, we feel it is only right that we should pay tribute to those workers.

Tonight, the Town of Riverview will say thank you to healthcare workers and first responders across New Brunswick and the world by turning on the blue-lit trees along Riverfront Park. The blue lights will remain on from dusk till dawn for the foreseeable future.

Whilst we hope turning these lights on will brighten people’s spirits, we ask that you continue to observe the recommendations from the province on social distancing and refraining from public gatherings.

Thank you,

The Town of Riverview
