With changes announced April 13 to self-isolation requirements between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, it is important to understand how these apply to family members coming from New Brunswick to pick up students at Dalhousie University at the end of the semester.

Currently, Nova Scotia allows travellers who are picking up students to enter the province from New Brunswick, providing they follow the COVID-19 Protocol for Nova Scotia-New Brunswick Travel. More information on self-isolation restrictions, guidelines and exceptions can be found at the Nova Scotia Coronavirus website.

The New Brunswick public health regulations currently allow you to travel to Nova Scotia for a period of no more than 24 hours to pick up your student, while observing all public health rules and minimizing contact with others. More information on leaving New Brunswick to pick up a student at Dalhousie University can be found on the Registering Travel into New Brunswick website under Student Travellers.

Important: Students returning to New Brunswick after living in Nova Scotia will not need to self-isolate upon their return.

Please refer to the respective provincial websites for more details on public health requirements, as they may change at any time.
