New Brunswick Public Health is monitoring a Covid-19 outbreak at Woodland Pulp in Baileyville Maine. 7 workers have tested positive to date. Woodland Pulp employs several Canadians who travel back and forth from the plant to St. Stephen and the surrounding area. New Brunswick Public Health is asking residents in the border region to be extra vigilant in their daily activities by avoiding large crowds where physical distancing cannot be maintained, wearing a mask in public areas and washing their hands frequently or using hand sanitizer.
This evolving situation reminds us all here in McAdam that Covid-19 remains on our doorstep and the disease is merely waiting for new unwary hosts. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available. Stay safe everyone.

McAdam Village Council
Village of McAdam Public Notice
In compliance with the Community Planning Act of New Brunswick (C-19), By- law #61, A By-law to Amend the Village of McAdam Rural Plan By-law #58 of the Village of McAdam, had its third and final reading at the April 29th, 2020 Council Meeting, was approved by the Minister of the Department of Environment and Local Government on May 27th, 2020 and then registered at the York County Registry Office of Service New Brunswick on July 9th, 2020 as document #40228141.
The Village Council has today been notified by CertainTeed Saint-Gobain the gypsum wall-board plant in McAdam will cease production 28 August 2020 and the plant will be permanently closed by 28 February 2021. This is devastating news for the community but even more so for the 59 employees at the Certainteed plant and the other employees of service companies that relied on the plant for work. Roughly two thirds of the employees affected reside in McAdam while the remaining third reside in Fredericton, Harvey and St. Stephen. Our hearts go out to all of you and your families during this time of uncertainty.
Council was advised this morning the reason for the closure was based on poor market conditions and the plant was working at 22 percent of its capacity. The company has told Council they are committed to working closely with all employees to mitigate the closure by assisting them with career counselling and job opportunities at other Certainteed plants.
We have notified government officials and will be requesting a meeting with Premier Higgs and his staff to discuss the CertainTeed plant closure and together develop a strategy going forward to minimize the negative impacts of this closure on the members of our community affected directly and the Village as a whole.
We are all in this together and together we will get through this.
Second CPR Dedication Bench
For nearly a century, the Canadian Pacific Railway, was a major employer within the Village of McAdam. Not only did the railway provide a livelihood for thousands of men and women, but also played a significant role in building the community.
In honour of the CPR workers, the McAdam Beautification Committee would like to erect a second CPR Dedication Bench for those with us, and those who have passed. Appropriately, the granite bench will be placed in “Whistle Stop Park”, where the names will be displayed for a lifetime.
The cost to purchase a name is $100. Please include the first and last name. Cash or cheques can be received at the McAdam Village Office, at 146 Saunders Rd, E6J-1L2, between 9am to 4pm weekdays. Email transfers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are able to accommodate 72 names on the bench.
