SELF-ISOLATION FOR TRAVELLERS
Anyone who has travelled outside of Atlantic Canada is still required to self-isolate for 14 days upon return.
The government of Nova Scotia also reminds every one of the importance of adhering to the public health order and directives, like practicing good hand washing, maintaining physical distance when and where required, and wearing a non-medical mask in required areas, and wherever else you feel comfortable.
Just over three weeks ago, interprovincial travel within Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador, was permitted without the requirement to self-isolate for permanent Atlantic Canadian residents.
Public health directives from each province must be followed when visiting.
Under Nova Scotia's Health Protection Act order, visitors from other Canadian provinces and territories must self-isolate for 14 days when arriving in the province. Any permanent resident travelling within the Atlantic Bubble is not required to self-isolate.
