Atlantic Bubble 2020 COVID-19 travel restrictions

The Atlantic Bubble is a special travel-restricted area created on July 3, 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada. The area is an agreement between four Atlantic Canadian provinces including New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador which allows unrestricted travel among provincial residents and restricts travel from Canadians who are residents of outside provinces. Residents wishing to travel to the Atlantic Bubble are subjected to screening and are required to quarantine for 14 days before moving freely amongst the bubble. Individual provinces have specific rules toward travellers from outside of Atlantic Canada. The provinces in the bubble have seen the lowest numbers of COVID-19 compared to others throughout the pandemic. In late November, three of the member-provinces temporarily suspended their involvement due to increasing COVID-19 cases numbers. Free travel is currently restricted between the provinces and the fate of the bubble remains unclear.
