The Nova Scotia Government has announced today that it is unlikely the Atlantic Bubble will open as planned on April 19th.
The Atlantic Premiers have a call planned and will announce a final decision following that, however, Premier Ranking stated during the media conference today that it is expected the opening will be delayed until sometime in May based on the case numbers in New Brunswick.
It was also announced today that restrictions on the New Brunswick border will be reinstated Thursday, April 15, at 8 a.m. People coming into Nova Scotia from New Brunswick will have to self-isolate upon arrival and complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form. There are protocols people should follow for certain situations:
– people traveling for work, school, child care or quick, necessary tasks that cannot be done virtually can follow the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick travel protocol
– people traveling for child custody reasons must follow the child custody protocol
– people who are exempt from self-isolation must follow the exempt traveler protocol
These protocols are being updated online to reflect the New Brunswick border restriction.
