The Nova Scotia Public Health has released updates to guidelines around self-isolation for travellers and testing for those self-isolating. 

Self-Isolation Updates – New Brunswick 

Effective Thursday, April 15 at 8:00 a.m., travellers arriving in Nova Scotia from New Brunswick will be required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival. This change was made due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in key areas of New Brunswick. 

This change will likely delay the re-establishment of the Atlantic Bubble to some time in May. We will update as information on this becomes available. 

Testing Recommendations 

Nova Scotia Public Health is now recommending that travellers in self-isolation in Nova Scotia book two tests during their 14-day isolation period – one on Day 1 or 2, and another on Day 12, 13, or 14.
