Borders Opened for Atlantic Interprovincial Travel
The premiers of the four Atlantic Provinces have agreed to a travel bubble beginning Friday, July 3rd.
Residents of Atlantic Canada will be allowed to travel freely within Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador, without self-isolation.
Premier Stephen McNeil said, “We're now in a place where we can ease restrictions within our region. This will allow families to travel and vacation this summer, boosting our tourism and business sectors.”
The move follows word that Nova Scotia has recorded another day without a new case of COVID-19. The microbiology lab at the QEII Health Science’s Centre conducted 333 tests yesterday, all negative for the coronavirus.
It is the 15th consecutive day, as the last positive test was recorded on June 9th.
All Atlantic travellers must adhere to the public health directives in the host province. Each province will choose its own process to track and monitor travellers.
Visitors from other Canadian provinces and territories must adhere to the local entry requirements in place in each of the four jurisdictions. Other Canadian visitors to the Maritime provinces, who have self-isolated for 14 days, may travel freely within the Maritime region.
Along with the fifteen day run of no new cases, Nova Scotia does not have a COVID patient anywhere in the province.
