There are reports out of Newfoundland and Labrador that an Atlantic bubble will be coming sooner than later.
“We’ll get there as soon as our work is finished with public health officials. We know people are in the mood to do some travelling,” said Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball.
Unconfirmed reports from Newfoundland and Labrador say that the magic date they’re aiming for is Monday, July 6. An Atlantic bubble would mean travel between the Atlantic provinces without having to isolate for 14 days upon arrival.
This all comes after New Brunswick’s Premier said today the Atlantic bubble would be coming in early July if all goes according to plan. The plan would be to open to the rest of Canada later in the month.
Officials have said that they will give businesses in the tourism sector enough notice to adjust their operations and prepare for visitors.
As of Friday June 19, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island both have zero active cases of COVID-19 while Nova Scotia has one. New Brunswick currently has 27 active cases, the majority concentrated in the Campbellton region.
