Travel Advisory for Northern New Brunswick, Statement

NOTE: The following is a statement from Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health

New Brunswick announced today, Oct.22, further restrictions related to an outbreak of COVID-19 in the Campbellton-Restigouche region of northern New Brunswick.

Restrictions in the Moncton area have been reduced as there are no new cases there.

While there are no changes to our border policy at this time, we recommend Nova Scotians avoid unnecessary travel to the Campbellton-Restigouche area.

It is important that Nova Scotians follow the public health measures here in our province and when visiting our neighbouring provinces. The key measures of physical distancing, gathering limits, hand washing and using a non-medical mask will help keep us safe.

We encourage Nova Scotians to monitor their health for symptoms of COVID-19 and use the self-screening tool at , to get a test if necessary.
