Atlantic Bubble, Statement from Premier

NOTE: The following is a statement from Premier Stephen McNeil.

Over the next few weeks, we need to monitor COVID-19 cases to ensure they stay low and we have little to no community spread. If we continue to flatten the curve, our first priority is to ease restrictions in our own province, including expanding the family bubble.

Nova Scotia is open to an Atlantic bubble, but we cannot put a date on it until we are sure our case numbers are low and the cases in other provinces remain low.

Currently in Nova Scotia, anyone who wants to come is welcome, as long as they don’t have any symptoms of COVID-19 and can self-isolate for 14 days when they arrive. We will decide when to lift those restrictions based on science.
